Summarised and/or Expandable Posts (3 posts)

    Hello,

    Is there a plugin or option available to only display shortened summaries of posts in the main blog page, and displaying the full post at the permalink address?

    I ask this because some posts are so long that they take up a
    large amount of space on my wordpress site (theme is Plainbox 1.0)

    Thanks

    Edit your theme's index.php to use the_excerpt() instead of the_content().

    The the_excerpt tag will give you first x characters of your post -- or, if you fill the optional excerpt field on the post editor, it will use that.

    Is there a way to do this, but remain on the main page when the full post is expanded (rather than opening a separate permalink page)?
