The Excerpt is a small summary of the full post or page content. It can show your readers a brief overview of what they can expect when reading the full article. Depending on the theme you have activated on your site, excerpts may be displayed on your homepage or archives pages.
Adding the Excerpt
A custom excerpt can be set in your Dashboard using the Editor:
- Navigate to the Editor (you can do it by editing any post or page).
- Under the Document settings in the Editor sidebar click on Excerpt.
- Type your excerpt in the textarea.
- Publish or update your page or post.
Please note that the Excerpt feature only works with certain themes.
