    Hello,

    How do I show the short version of a post on the homepage? One of my posts is very long and I would like to show the shortened version and have folks click on the title to take them to the full version.

    Thanks.

    Put the more tag in the post itself, otherwise you can change the_content to the_excerpt in your home page file - both of which have been discusseed ad naseum on this forum and can be found easily by searching before posting. Have a nice day.

    Edit post and add the <!--more--> tag to the post where you want it to stop. There is a "more" button at the top of your post editor that will insert this code as well.
