    Hi everyone,

    I want to add to my blog (www.symbianplanet.net) the excerpts features and have 3 or 4 full posts and then 5 or 6 excerpts like in the options theme by justin tadlock.

    Is this possible? How?

    Excerpts can be stated on each post.

    There's an example here that shows the_content on the first post and the_excerpt on subsequent posts so look at:

    You could also look at something like this:

    Resources:
    Template_Tags/the_content
    Template_Tags/the_excerpt
