    Working with Feature Site. The "About" section in the lower left of home page doesn't seem to want to truncate. I've tried what I can think of ... any insight much appreciated.

  2. PS - if you Ctrl + F for Continue Reading, you'll see that the entire post is publishing.

  3. Problem Solved - here's what I did in order to cover the need:

    1. Use a word counter tool to define exactly how long I wanted the excerpt to be.
    2. Installed the Advanced Excerpt plugin.
    3. In the Advanced Excerpt settings, I added my exact excerpt length, and left the Ellipsis and 'Read-more' Text fields BLANK.
    4. Check the "don't remove any markup" box (which I needed to do in order to keep the photo I have in the post)

    Done. This allows the Thematic Feature Site to use the custom excerpt I wanted. Since I show full length posts (and they're not very long) on the Blog page, this didn't cause any problems.

    So - this works - for me, in this case, on this site. If you have a more appropriate way of managing this, please don't hesitate to share.
