Post Teaser

Post Teaser generates excerpts of posts for the main, archive and category pages, also generate a word count, image count, and estimated reading time.

NOTICE: Please reconfigure PostTeaser if you have just upgraded from PostTeaser versions prior to 4.1.x. There are new options under the new section "Disable tease" and "Show fullpost" that is not set by default after an upgrade. The side effect is PostTeaser will seem like it has stop working if none of these new options are set. New install will have the default options set, so is not affected.

Post Teaser generates a preview or "teaser" of a post for the main, archive and category pages, with a link underneath to go to the full post page. It includes features to generate a word count, image count, and an estimated reading time.

Reasons you might want to use Post Teaser:

  • You keep putting <!--more--> into your posts

  • Current translation files will not have translation for new options introduced in this release. Apologies to Non-English users of PostTeaser.
