    I have posts being displayed in the footer but it is displaying the full posts and not the excerpt. How can I have it to only display title/excerpts or just to display the title of the post?

    Hi,

    You can also use widgets to display the latest posts in the footer section

    Go to the Appearance -> Widgets -> Footer Column 2 -> Add widget

    Can you please share your website URL and WP admin login details at [email protected] so we can check and assist you quickly?

    Widgets worked in 2nd column but without heading. When I added a heading widget, it messed up the display of the 3rd column. Again, ‘forcing’ the display of the full post is just nuts in a footer column. There should be options to display title, date, author, & excerpt. Then the website designer/developer can create the display they want for the website.

    I finally gave up and put in a footer menu in the 2nd column.

    It is a major problem I have seen for 20+ years with templates/theme development teams when they make design decisions which should be left up to the firm that is developing the website, ie: displaying content in ‘plain text’ when the option to display in HTML or Plain text should be offered.

    I have removed the code from footer.php at line no. 98 that displays text excerpt of blog post in the footer Latest News section

    Thanks. I found the code to removed the thumbnail and increase the # of posts to 5 as well as adding CSS to close up the gaps. Now it looks like we want it to look.
