Add Title or Heading Above Tiles (When Displaying Excerpts)

It would be enormously helpful to have the Tiles section for excerpts display with a top header or title, similar to the way Featured Content displays. The section without a title does look as though something is missing, especially when it is displayed directly under the titled Featured Content sec...

Re: Show a Heading Above Tiles?

Thanks for your kind reply, Sayontan. Is the hack to the php file something I can easily do? Are there one or two lines of code I could insert at a particular place? Probably it's not that simple. I hope you'll forgive me if I am asking hopelessly naive questions. I am far from an expert. I do of co...

Show a Heading Above Tiles?

Hi again, one more customization question: How would I tweak the tiles layout to add a heading above the row of tiles? Similar to the heading that appears above "Featured Content." I have Featured Content set up as a widget all across the top (top sidebar under header). Below Featured Content will b...

Re: COntrol number of text lines shown in side article block in

Make the tile excerpts flush left. It worked for me. Try putting this in your Blog Features/Custom CSS box:

div.suf-tile-text p {
text-align: left;
}

Re: Remove Justified Text in Tile Excerpts?

This didn't work, but after taking another stab at it I hit on the solution: div.suf-tile-text p { text-align: left; } Success! Thank you so much for looking into this--I hated to draw your attention away from more significant updates, but this little tweak really makes a huge difference. Maybe this...

Different Excerpt Length for Tiles vs. Featured Content

It would be great to be able to set different lengths for the excerpts used in Tiles (where I like shorter!) vs. Featured Content or Text Excerpts (where I want longer ones). Right now you have to choose one word limit, which means I have to accept a huge compromise---to get a bare-bones Tile excerp...

Re: Remove Justified Text in Tile Excerpts?

Thank you so much for your response. Hate to say it, but the css change you suggested doesn't do a thing. It's reassuring in one way because I can see I was on the right track--I had already tried this snippet myself. But I still don't know what the solution is. I'd like to do the same thing in the ...

Re: Remove Justified Text in Tile Excerpts?

Thanks for your reply. I can understand why you ask to see urls, Connie! The problem is that my site isn't live yet--still under development on an internal server. In any case, it's just a simple clue I need about a styles tweak. Not anything at all wrong or buggy with the wonderful Suffusion theme,...

Remove Justified Text in Tile Excerpts?

I've tried modifying every bit of code I could find, experimenting with Web Developer and Firebug. The issue I'm trying desperately to fix is that tile excerpts sometimes end up looking extremely spacy between words ... and of course this will be worse on some people's browsers when they have specif...

Set Different Excerpt Length for Featured Content vs. Tiles

Wondering if there is a way to specify a different length for excerpts that show with Featured Content as opposed to those that show with Tiles. I'd like the Tiles excerpts to be more concise. I've tried my best to research this and figure out how to do it--experimented with Web Developer also, but ...
