In addition to this, is it intended that the front page doesn't show a preview of the content of most posts ?

Hey there, Guntha! Thanks for the bug report. We'll be sure to take a look at this. The BBCode parser was recently replaced and improved by the team, so there are perhaps some issues (like this one) that have yet to be ironed out.

I don't believe this is intended behavior, though I definitely don't think this is a new issue. We'll take a look at this as well.

These are the shenanigans you get when you generate HTML and then try to make excerpts by chopping off your HTML after some point.

I think it's pretty clear what the fix will eventually be (make an alternative bbcode renderer for just excerpts) but I don't think it will be a high priority for a bit, with the library and some other tasks at the foreground. I'll for sure put it on our list though so we can get to it eventually.

Thanks for the reports!
