Completely Custom Excerpt (2 posts)

    Hello!

    I was looking for something that may or may not be possible in WP. Basically, I am looking for a way to be able to have my own customer excerpt. By custom, I mean I can type 2-3 paragraphs that are completely different than the post itself, and when the post is clicked on they could then read the real, whole post.

    Basically a short description that isn't taken out of the actual post.

    Can this be done? Thanks!

    when you write or edit a post, click on the screen options tab near the top right, then tick 'excerpt' in the show on screen section - this will enable/open an excerpt input field below the post editor.

    (you only need to do this once)
