Do you want to display a summary of your blog posts on your blog page with a “Read More” tag or ellipsis (…) for the user to click on and be taken to the full version?
WordPress provides 2 methods to display that summary:
- The beginning of the post will be automatically cut off after 55 words and the Read More link or button will appear in the summary.
- You can custom craft a 55 word “excerpt” that you enter on the post and it will display regardless of your post content.
The first option is the default. However, it can be annoying when the text gets cut off in mid sentence.
Download this Fact Sheet that will explain how you can manage that.
