    I am in the process of setting up an alternate home page for my users to consider at http://www.lavenhamliteraryfestival.co.uk/test-home-page-with-news. For the first time I am using the Show Posts function which is where I need your help. The essence of the displayed page is fine. I first show posts in the ‘news’ category, then a bit of text, then pages in the ‘authors-2015’ category in a 3 column layout.

    The first issue is that the text I show in between the 2 grids which begins ‘Further news …‘ is not left aligned. It appears to be aligned under the 2nd excerpt but this may be coincidence.
    The actual text on the page is:

    Welcome to Lavenham Literary Festival which returns during the weekend of  13, 14 and 15 November 2015 with a wonderful cast of writers.

    [show_posts filter=news-summary]

    Further news on the authors joining us in November and the festival arrangements will added here – so stay tuned!

    Authors Signed up so far for 2015

    [show_posts filter=authors-2015]

    The second challenge is that I’m not succeeding in trying to apply some basic styling to the excerpts in the 2 excerpt layouts. In the custom CSS box of the Show Posts menu I have the following:

    .atw-entry-summary {
    border: 2px solid red ;

    But it has no effect. I’ve now added !important just in case, but it made no difference.

    I’ve played a bit more with this feature since I asked this question, but the 2 issues above remain. I’ve added another post (venues)  but the excerpt shows first. I re-published the welcome post as sticky, and I checked the option in the Show Posts filter to show sticky posts at the beginning of displayed posts. I’ve now got a box round the post, but it’s still in 2nd position?

    Any help gratefully received.


    1- To make sure your text clears the post, you need to add a clearing to it.

    Switch you content editor to TEXT mode, and add the following HTML before the text

    <div style=”clear:both;”></div>

    2- There is no such class as atw-entry-summary. The show post container has the class atw-show-posts-filter-news-summary  and the excerpts  entry summary, so if you want a border on the excerpts use

     .atw-show-posts-filter-news-summary .entry-summary {border:2px solid red;}

    3- To change post orders, edit the publish date of the post in their post editing page



    .atw-entry-summary is added to a post excerpt ONLY if you have checked the “Disable automatic post display integration with Weaver II/Aspen/Weaver Xtreme Themes” option. Otherwise, the normal classes used by Weaver Xtreme will surround the excerpt.
