How to customize recent blog posts on Salient wordpress theme


Please visit this page: http://fourandhalf.com/home-page-mockup/

At the very bottom is a section with 3 of the most recent blog posts laid out. I am trying to remove the 30 character excerpt from the blogs here BUT ONLY for this particular page. I know how to change the character limit down to zero for the entire site but I don't want this. I want zero characters only on this particular page.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your time!

Hi Brandon,

You would have to write a conditional for that based on ID or title.

Below is an example. However, if it is strictly going to be frontpage/homepage there are additional/other ways to write it.

You would still need to include this within the function/add_filter.

if ( is_page ( 42 ) ) { 
    $length = 0; 
    $length = 30;
return $length
