    I’d like to be able to format the team excerpts and include links. Would it be possible for you to provide custom css to allow this?

    Hi there

    By default any WordPress excerpt can not include the HTML including the links. For this you must show whole content in place. If you would like that then share the page URL where I can see how you are using the staff posts shortcode so I can provide you with a custom template.

    Thanks

    Ah, I see. Thanks very much for the offer. Here’s the URL: https://www.dev.ptfund.org/experts/. I’d like the “Expertise: ” content to be in H4 and different colors. I’d be great if we could link the different types of expertise to program pages.

    I’d also like to be able to sort the team members somehow on this and other pages. Is there a function for this?

    I just checked and found there is already option in the team page builder element to show full content instead of excerpt https://d.pr/i/s9Xxey Edit your page BORNTOGIVE Team element to choose this option. Now to show different color and link the expertise to their respective pages you can edit your team posts and make the necessary changes.

    By sort you mean a filter option at the top of posts, if so then this is not available in the theme itself. You may want to try this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/search-filter/

    Thanks

    My apologies. I must have misunderstood your last response. I would not like to show the full profile on the ‘team member’ page. If we did, the page would go on forever, as we have over 50 members.

    I would like to be able to have a ‘team member’ page with a very brief description of their expertise. Is there a way we can make this possible (without the use of excerpts) so that I can include links and formatting?

    Also, is there a function to sort members? Or at least list them in a specific order?

    Sorry, but excerpt field will not show any HTML inside, you can use content there and try adding “Read More” tag in the team posts editor to break the content if it works for you.

    To sort members to your choice you can use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-types-order/ which allows you to drag drop posts to sort. Thanks
