Post Description Plugin (3 posts)

    I really dislike the whole "blah blah blah...(read more)" format of posts. I want to be able to write my own short descriptions and not have the software generate them for me just by grabbing the first couple dozen characters of a post. Is there a plugin for WordPress that can let me do this?

    Under the post editor, you have the opportunity to explicitly write an "Optional excerpt", that should be used instead of the "blah blah blah...". May be theme dependent though.

    Hi,

    You might also like to look at the Content Extract plugin for WordPress that was developed in WP2, but which should also work in 1.5+.

    This will give a bit more control over how an extract gets output, and a coming upgrade makes some further improvements.

    This plugin will work with explicit excerpts, the <!--more--> tag, or specific word or sentence counts for auto-generated "blah, blah, blah..."'s, along with allowing the check length and cut length to be specified separately from each other.

    Cheers

    Rob
