    I love this layout, I’m just a little confused on how to make my posts only show an excerpt and not the entire post on the main page. I’ve tried all of the WordPress directions to no avail. Help a girl out!
    Thanks!

    Hi there,
    thank you for using our theme :)

    You can use custom excerpt: https://en.support.wordpress.com/excerpts/#creating-excerpts or the read more tag: https://en.support.wordpress.com/more-tag/

    Finally, if you do not want to edit each post, you could add this CSS in order to set a maximum height for the content:

    .janice-grid-post .entry-summary {
        max-height: 350px;
        position: relative;
        overflow: hidden;
    }
    .janice-grid-post .entry-summary:before {
        bottom: 0;
        position: absolute;
        float: left;
        left: 0;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        content: "";
        background: linear-gradient(to bottom, rgba(0,0,0,0) 0%, rgba(0,0,0,0) 70%,  rgb(255, 255, 255) 85%, rgb(255, 255, 255) 100%);
    }

    Hope this helps :)
