I apologize. I did try to do a search first and didn't find what I was looking for.
What is happening is that when I make a post, if I leave the Excerpt field blank, one is not automatically generated by WordPress. I was of the understanding that is what is supposed to happen.
Any ideas what is causing the issue? I'm using the latest version of WordPress, though I do have a number of plugins. However, I did try it on a fresh install of WordPress and it didn't generate an excerpt either.
Thanks in advance.
