Parament
[resolved] How to display a portion/preview of blog posts on Home page? (3 posts)

    Hello,

    With the wordpress theme Parament is there a way from the Home page to just show a portion of a blog post?
    Such that a small paragraph can be read and if the reader wishes to read more they would then have to click on the blog to load a new page and view the entire post.
    I'm not sure what this is called.
    I want to be able to have more posts visible from the Home page.

    TIA!

    The part of the posts which you want to show are called excerpts.
    you can refer to below:

    Hi wp-21,

    Thank you so much for you reply!

    The link you gave me lead me from excerpts to teasers.

    Then I found this wordpress plugin called striptease which allows me to paste in the text <!--more--> right after where I want my excerpt (or tease) to stop. It's so simple and works perfectly!

    Thank you!
