    Hi Henry,

    If you're looking to show the first few lines of the article on a section page you could do that with some minor theme customization.

    Following the linked instructions, edit your theme's section_page.hbs file, look for the block of code below and add the line in bold:

    {{#if section.articles}}
    <ul class="article-list">
    {{#each section.articles}}
    <li class="article-list-item {{#if promoted}} article-promoted{{/if}}">
    {{#if promoted}}
    <span data-title="{{t 'promoted'}}" class="icon-star"></span>
    {{/if}}
    <a href="{{url}}" class="article-list-link">{{title}}</a>
    {{#if internal}}
    <span class="icon-lock" title="{{t 'internal'}}"></span>
    {{/if}}

    <p class="excerpt">{{excerpt body}}</p>
    </li>
    {{/each}}
    </ul>
    {{else}}
    <i class="section-empty">
    <a href="{{section.url}}">{{t 'empty'}}</a>
    </i>
    {{/if}}

     

    This shows the first 120 characters of each article. You could go higher if needed by using f.e.:

    <p class="excerpt">{{excerpt body characters=200}}</p>

     

    I'm assuming you're on a stock Copenhagen theme but the same principles apply to other themes as well.

     

    Hope that helps!
