I’m unsure whether it is just the Haven theme or if the issue would extend to any Boldgrid Theme.
I launched my staging site, making it the active site, then removed the Staging plugin. I had noticed the issue before removing the plugin, but had hoped that would fix it. On my Blog page, all my posts are in full length. This also extends to the categories pages, all the posts when viewed under their individual categories page are full length.
In Reading Settings (I have reverted the Boldgrid menu changes to restore the default WordPress Admin Sidebar) I have the “For each article in a feed, show” Summary box checked. On the site not built with Boldgrid, this caused all my posts under the Blog and Categories pages to be short excerpts with a read more button at the bottom linking to the full post on it’s own page. With Boldgrid, that setting is ignored and displayed full length no matter what the option checked is.
I have tried switching the options back and forth several times, as well as refreshing all Permalinks in case invalid links were somehow influencing this.
Thanks for posting your question. I’m sorry to see about the issue you are experiencing with the Reading Settings not working properly while using BoldGrid’s Haven theme. It’s important to note that the setting you are changing does not apply to your Blog/Posts/Pages. Rather, it applies to your site’s RSS Feed. If you wanted to display a custom “Read More” tag, rather than the full excerpt, you would simply add this tag, at the position in your text where you want the content to stop being displayed:
I hope this helps!
