Using Excerpts for your blog summaries

With most themes, I generally recommend using the excerpts option because it gives a much better look and feel when it relates to using featured images or style formatting within your post’s summary (excerpt). Excerpts in WordPress will strip any formatting out, but brings it back when the full post is viewed.

Enable Excerpts

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Theme Options
  2. Find the “Use Excerpts” setting and check the box next to it to enable it…or uncheck to disable excerpts.

Excerpt Size

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Theme Options
  2. Find the “Excerpt Size” setting and either type in the number of words, or use the up/down arrows on the right side of the field. NOTE: The arrows will show when you mouseover the field.
