Wells template: Blog post excerpt image always fills container

Recommended Posts


I am beginning to create a blog (https://philipus.com/journal) and wish to prevent the full posts from showing on the blog landing page. I have tried to create blog post excerpts however the image I attach always fills the width of the blog page. I don't want this, but wish that the excerpt image size remains untouched. I have tried to edit the image using the built-in image editor (from the Image properties pane) and re-saving it as current size, but that doesn't work. And there is no way in the Options tab under the blog post settings to add spacers or such.

I am using the Wells template. What can be done to fix this? 

Thanks in advance

You can use CSS to limit post excerpt height, like this screenshot


To do this, add to Home > Design > Custom CSS

.article-list article {
    max-height: 200px;
    overflow: hidden;
