Snippets on the homepage (4 posts)

    I'm looking to use snippets of posts on my blog homepage. The only way I can find to do this is using the_excerpt function in the index.php template. The problem is that it puts a (...) at the point where the excerpt is cut off.

    Instead of having a (...), I want this to be a link to the full article and I want the link to be text that I choose.

    Is there a way to do this in WordPress?

    Thanks,

    Leigh

    I prefer the Excerpt Editor myself.

    It is always nice to have more options.

    For those that don't like editing template files... probably the excerpt editor is a better choice.
    If you don't mind working with code - my example gives you other kind of flexibilities.
