Page excerpt not working, tried everything. Help?

Hi, I’ve paid for and activated ECAE. It’s working how I want on my front page. However, I’d also like it to work on another page (a dummy page called "Sample Page" I made).

I went to Excerpt location -> Advanced Settings, and chose the page I want it to appear on:

(by the way, the image uploading function of this forum doesn’t work… So I had to use that external one.)

I saved and went to the page, where there’s nothing:

I’ve tried changing the Excerpt size setting. I’ve tried changing the theme (to several different ones). I updated the Sample Page after doing these things. None of this worked.

Am I missing something? Is there some documentation for this? I’m somewhat disappointed because I paid for a license and this simple task doesn’t seem to be working.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi declanoller,
Have you make sure on the excerpt method you choose character?

I try on my desktop in it is working fine.
If you still have a trouble don’t hesitate to contact me again.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I tried character for the method. Still nothing. It did change the excerpts on my front page though.

Just to be sure, though: the only thing I’ve done to get the excerpts on my “Sample Page” page is choosing it like in my first picture above. Is that all I need to do, for it to show up there? thank you.

Would you mind if I look into your settings by logging-in to your website?

on October 19, 2018

Err, sorry, I’m not comfortable with that. I can give you the URL of my site, or take any pictures you need from my settings. What would you like to look at? Thank you!

Hi, any update on this? I’m sure I can show or tell you whatever settings you need to see.

It is okay if you are not comfortable, but it will go too much complicated if you have to tell the settings on your website, very not effective and time consuming. Sorry but I can’t no longer help.

In my experience it’s very uncommon to be asked for login information and a huge security risk. I paid for this plugin, can you really not provide support? I’ll probably report this to WordPress and others.

It is our common procedure to assist our customer. You can read here:

I offer you quick solution by asking login information but if you want long solution it is okey.
Tell me:
a. WordPress version
b. Theme
c. plugins are installed.
d. Screenshot your general options.

e. Then screenshot your excerpt location settings. The setting should like this:

Hi, thank you.

(a) and (b): WordPress 4.9.8 running BasePress theme.

(c) List of plugins:



I just noticed now that in the plugins list, I have both ECAE and ECAE premium. Should I get rid of the non premium one? thank you.

Change this to character method:

Remove sample page options

and then try set with advanced options, make it like this

Sorry forget to ask to screenshot your sample page content, and does it happen only on sample page or another pages? Have you tried also make another page (filled with content) and excerpting this?
