    The post excerpts on the home page (and archives) allow 30 words from the post. If the featured picture thumbnail is tall (say, more than 200 px), then there is extra white space below the excerpt text. Is there a way to adjust the word count to about 80 so there is more content in each excerpt? Thank you.

    Hi,

    Sorry, it can not be modified without editing the functions.php file (which is not recommended). In the next update of the theme, you can modify the exerpts length using a child theme.

    Regards.

    Thank you. I did find that setting in functions.php and changed the number from 30 to 80, realizing I would lose it and need to edit it again after a theme update. I haven’t used a child theme before, so I will try to figure that out next time. When I was theme-shopping, I noticed that some authors offer this excerpt length setting among the Customize options, an easy method. I just went live with the Salinger Pro theme and it’s working well. Thanks again.
