[resolved] How do I abbreviate or 'excerpt' my posts? (3 posts)

    I have tried the following

    <?php the_excerpt() ?>

    in my loop. AKA after the first of 5 paragraphs in a story for example. Nod dice.

    I have also tried copying and pasting a paragraph into the excerpt box in the write/write post section. No dice.

    No one else seems to have this issue so it must be easy!

    Thanks for all your help.

    I'm having the same problem with excerpts (and other editing issues) in WP [2 and 1.5]. I've tried to edit posts (both in WYSIWYG and HTML) and the edits don't stick. It's a nightmare.

    I don't know where the excerpt option went in 2.0, but you can decide where to cut of each article manually using the more function, or the page function.
