The blog units / blog cards displayed in the blog list can be changed by working on 2 files

templates/blog_unit.php – for the full width blog type

templates/blog_unit2.php – for the grid type list

In there we load and displa the title and link using

$link = get_permalink();
$title = get_the_title();

and the image with

$thumb_prop = get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, ‘property_listings’,$extra );

The excerpt is loaded with this code (if there is no image attached to the blog post we load more content)

if( has_post_thumbnail() ){
echo wpestate_strip_words( get_the_excerpt(),18).' ...';
} else{
echo wpestate_strip_words( get_the_excerpt(),40).' ...';
} ?>
