Summy generates excerpts for your posts by applying various algorithms for automatic summarization extraction. It scores your text's sentences, based on extended configuration options, and returns the highest ranked. WP-Summy is based on the Sum+my and was created in an attempt to further develop the Core Library through your feedback.

How To Use

  • Write your blog post as you normally do
  • Make sure excerpt and summy blocks are on screen
  • Experiment with all the options and hit Summarize

Why use Summy

WordPress excerpts can be displayed in places where quick summaries are preferable to full content like:

  • RSS feeds
  • Search Results
  • Archives Pages
  • Meta Description

When a post has no manual excerpt, WordPress generates ONE automatically by selecting the first 55 words of the post. Automatically generated excerpts don't summarize the post properly leaving guests guessing what the post is about. Summy will analyze your post's sentences and use the highest ranked that best describe your post, which could lead in better search engine results and more targetted audience for your blog. Summy's summaries are not perfect and you might also need to do some editing before publishing your content but they are a lot better than random 55 words...
