    (following https://wpshowposts.com/support/topic/re-wpsp-pro-1-0-beta-3/)

    I’m still trying to understand how to best use WPSP new cards functionality and today, in a moment of impatience, I decided to do a local wordpress installation. To my surprise, excerpt word count doesn’t work there also. If I specify 10 words, it keeps showing the first paragraph. I started my grid post by selecting cards overlay 1, then did several custom changes – all seemed to work – but not that one. One that isn’t working also is image height. I want to specify a image height but one row (2 posts) show one height, another row (another 2 posts) show a different height.

    Anyways, as said, I like overlay style 1 but I would like to be able to:
    1. set font to All Caps
    2. Align title and button to left
    3. To be able top define phone aspect ratio (so that photos aren’t cut off left and right – they are centred…)

    Hi Joao,

    I’m still trying to understand how to best use WPSP new cards functionality and today, in a moment of impatience, I decided to do a local wordpress installation. To my surprise, excerpt word count doesn’t work there also. If I specify 10 words, it keeps showing the first paragraph. I started my grid post by selecting cards overlay 1, then did several custom changes – all seemed to work – but not that one. One that isn’t working also is image height. I want to specify a image height but one row (2 posts) show one height, another row (another 2 posts) show a different height.

    It’s actually a good idea to have a local dev environment for your WordPress site. Some of us are using this https://localwp.com/ . You may want to try it out too.:)

    I’ve tried replicating the issue w/ my own locally hosted WordPress installation and was unable to replicate the issue. Can you inspect your webpage for any errors? perhaps maybe clear WP and browser cache as well?

    1. set font to All Caps

    1. Can you specify which part? Ex: title, excerpt, button. etc.

    If you want the title to be all caps, you can try this CSS.

    .wp-show-posts-entry-title a {
        text-transform:uppercase;
    }

    For the button:

    .wpsp-read-more {
    	text-transform: uppercase;
    }

    For excerpt/entry summary:

    .wp-show-posts-entry-summary p {
    	text-transform: uppercase;
    }

    2. All elements used in WPSP are aligned left by default.

    3. I’m not sure what you mean by this. Can you elaborate further? (provide screenshots/video if possible.)

    Hi again Elvin.

    I’m feeling a little frustrated for not being able to reproduce the excerpt count word issue again… Yesterday it was showing on a local wp install (yes!, using localwp :)here ). Today I did a fresh install again and suddenly issue was not there anymore. And I installed a new site in my dev server (shared hosting in hawkhost) and I can’t replicate it there neither.

    So, issue with excerpt word count is now happening only in a flywheel staging website. And I can’t manage cache any settings there…

    Thank you for your CSS tips. They’ll definitely help me to achieve my goal (I was referring to title; since I’m unable to limit excerpt content I will not use it for now).

    Reg wpsp elements alignment: https://tinyurl.com/y3e6much this is a print screen from staging server. 1st and last post grid cards are overlay style 1 and they’re centered

    Reg phone images: let me check it again with MK before returning to this.

    That may just be it. Purging cache.

    Oh my bad, I had the default style in mind.

    Yes Overlay Style 1 has its wrapper set to text-align:center. Everything else is set to inherit it.

    To make all of its contents align left, you can add this css code:

    .wpsp-overlay.wpsp-ov-style-one .wpsp-content-wrap {
        text-align: left;
    }

    Reg phone images: let me check it again with MK before returning to this.

    Sure, take your time.
