Is there a way to display only first few lines of a post? (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I was looking for a way that each of my posts could display only the first few lines and then display a "Read More" link. Is that possible?

    Thanks.

    You can manually add a Read More break from the visual editor, which allows you to control exactly what you want to show for your excerpt.

    Or, you can modify your theme directly (recommend using a child theme) to use the excerpt function:

    There are also lots of other solutions posted throughout these forums, if you search for "excerpt."
