    hey guys just a quick one hopefully some one can help
    ive just installed 2 plugins on my blog and they seem to be conflicting with each other.
    i installed "homepage excerpt" to show excerpts on the home page and the other plugin was "thumbnails for excerpts" to show the thumbs of pics in the excerpts on the homepage.
    it all works ok but for some reason the "continue reading..." link on the excerpt vanishes with "thumbnails for excerpts" plugin turned on
    anyone out there help me asap?

    my guess after looking at the plugin code is that the thumbnail plugin is filtering the output of the homepage plugin. I dont have enough info on your setup to know for sure..

    get rid of your "homepage excerpt" plugin and in the "index.php" file just replace "the_content()", by "the_excerpt()", it should work fine as you should get the same result ;)

    my only suggestion here is to hack the plugin to output what you want. Sorry but im use to customizing the plugin if it doesnt do what I want it to do. I dont see how it could be your theme but its possible.
