    Im pretty new to WordPress so excuse me if this is common knowledge.

    However when im writing articles on wordpress they then show on my website in full and now the page is just getting longer and longer all the time.

    Ive restricted so my page only shows 4-5 articles however that is still long.

    So is it possible so that wordpress will only show short snippets on my story and then link to the full story?

    Examples: http://www.avfcblog.com, http://www.beersweden.se/

    in your blog template's home.php or index.php, use the_excerpt() function instead of the_content() to display the posts.

    Or use the <--more--> tag in posts.
