Rich Text Excerpts

A WordPress plugin which swaps out the textarea used for excerpts with a TinyMCE editor instance.

  1. Upload the plugin to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Configure the plugin using the Plugin options page under the Settings menu

If you want to use excerpts in pages, add this to your theme's functions.php file:

add_post_type_support('pages', 'excerpt');

See add_post_type_support in the Codex for details.

If you want to use excerpts in Custom Post Types, do it when you create them using the supports array in the arguments for register_post_type.
