    Very happy with this theme.

    Just have a couple of things:

    1) I checked yes for “Show excerpts on front page and on archive pages instead of full posts” under Appearance > Mobile but on my iPhone the posts are expanded (not truncated) on my front page. Makes for a long scroll to the bottom.

    2) Again with Mobile view, when I click on a post from my front page, everything looks great except between the Related section and the Leave a Reply section, there are 2 orange vertical rectangles with links to related posts. On my iPhone the titles run off of the orange areas.

    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Hi there, the mobile settings under Appearance > Mobile only apply if you actually choose to use the mobile theme. Since you’ve deactivated the mobile theme on that page, the other settings – such as exerpts on the front page – don’t take effect.

    If you’d like excerpts displayed on your home page, please try selecting “Yes” next to “Enable mobile theme” and you should then get your excerpts. Once you do that, your second issue may become moot since the mobile theme will take effect, but I will bring it to our developers’ attention so folks who choose not to enable the mobile theme will have readable related posts. :-)

    Let me know how it goes!



    Thanks for the help. I really like the Wire mobile theme, so I can live without the excerpts on the front page, so no worries.

    But if the developers could fix the Related Posts on mobile, that would make this theme perfect.

    Thanks again.

    Glad you like the theme!

    I’ve just put in a bug report – looks like the issue is actually with the links to the “next” and “previous” post below each single post.

    We’ll keep you posted and let you know when it’s been fixed. Thank you for the report.



    Hi there, I wanted to let you know that this issue has now been fixed. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
