Adding post but not in full on main page? (3 posts)

    Hey,

    I'm looking to add like a news page to my blog site.

    I want to write the whole post, but on the index page it is only a summary with a link to the full story on the news page. How do I go about this?

    I believe in the WP admin area for Settings > Reading > For each article in a feed, show (your choice) that's just for the RSS feed?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    you need to alter your theme's index.php (or for example home.php, category-4.php, depending on your theme)

    Replace this tag:

    <?php the_content(); ?>

    by this tag:

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    read here how to use it.

    Do I use that tag in conjunction with what's already there?

    I've tried reading up on the link you provided but it's confused me even further!

    Any further help available!?
