Here is the code (extra space around the bracket to keep it from working):

[ display-posts include_excerpt=”true” image_size=”thumbnail” wrapper=”div” posts_per_page=”10″ category=”iphone-and-ipad” excerpt_length=”95″ excerpt_more=”Continue Reading” excerpt_more_link=”true” ]

The question for me is, why does this produce the result, with the post title in the link? It seems that something else is kicking in. But why? I notice that when I change the “excerpt_length” I do not see a change in the what is produced.

Here is what it produces:

iOS Messages How to delete (or forward) part of a text message conversation on an iPhone or iPad- Every so often, for one reason or another you want to delete (or forward) part of a text message conversation. Not the entire conversation, just part of it. Maybe just one or two messages (maybe pictures). Here's how you do it. (Here's how you delete part of a Messages conversation on a Mac.) Note: if you want to delete an entire conversation you simply swipe left on the conversation itself and then tap "Delete." If you just want to delete every text message that is more than a year old (maybe you're a football coach… Continue Reading

How to Print Mailing Labels from an iPhone or iPad- This blog post is about printing labels from an iPhone or iPad using an app called Address Labels for CardLists. I have another article about how to print just about anything from an iPhone or iPad. Take your pick! It's time to mail your holiday cards. You may recall from previous posts (this one from 2012, and this one from 2014) that when it comes to printing mailing labels from an iPhone or iPad, I really like the app called Address Labels for CardLists. Lucky us: Address Labels for CardLists' developer updated his app recently,… Continue Reading
Close all 418 tabs Extend your iPhone’s battery life by closing unneeded Safari tabs- Many people are surprised to find several (or even "gobs of") open Safari tabs on their iPhones. This can be a handy feature: click on the tabs button at bottom right in Safari... ... scroll through the list of open pages, and tap the one you want to view. Easy. Bonus Tip #1: swipe up to see the tabs that are open on your other iCloud-connected devices. Maybe you had a web page open on your Mac but you want to finish reading it on your iPhone while standing in line to buy a lottery… Continue Reading

iOS 12 iOS 12: First Impressions, and advice- Apple released iOS 12 September 17th, 2018 and I installed it right away on an iPhone 8 Plus and an iPad Pro. Installation went smoothly and there was a noticeable speed improvement on each device: apps launch faster, and the camera is ready to take a picture almost immediately. iOS 12 will work on any iPhone that can run iOS 11. If you were waiting for iOS 11 to finally be ready for prime-time, forget it-- instead, move to 12. iOS 12 is not perfect; in a few days of medium use, the back button… Continue Reading
Synching iPhone Messages with Mac How to sync text messages between your iPhone and your Mac- It's really handy to have your iPhone's text messages show up on your Mac (and/or iPad). Start a texting conversation on your iPhone when you're out, then continue it at home or work when you're able to use your Mac (or iPad). Each device will have the complete conversation, and the other party will not know that you aren't doing it all on your iPhone. Setting it up takes a couple of steps, and occasionally things stop working. In that case you'll need to check on the settings again. This article tells you everything you… Continue Reading
