    Nice idea but this already can be implemented by plenty of other methods.:)

    I wasn't aware page excerpts were a previous feature, I wonder why they were removed? - I'm using pages rather than posts so this would certainly be a very helpful feature for me.

    Would be great to have this feature. Nearly all pages on the site I am currently working on have a small section of text at the top of the page that need to be higlighted.

    An implemented excerpt field shown out-of-the-box on the "edit page" form would be great to define the text of the excerpt more individually.

    Please visit the WP development forum and vote for page excerpts in v3.0!

    Meanwhile, the easiest and best code for adding manual page excerpts is on mfields.org ... if you hover your mouse over the WordPress 2.5 code and click "View Source" you can copy and paste from there. Yes it works on WP 2.9.

    The Autonav plugin can use those excerpts, and WP 2.9's page thumbnails, to create automatic child-page navigation lists or tables. The list or table can contain each child page's title, thumbnail, and excerpt (like "teaser" text). There's a screenshot here, and a demo on the Plugin homepage.

    Any updates on this? I really don't understand why page excerpts are still not enabled by default in WP.
