Auto Excerpt everywhere


Created to help those people who don’t like to edit code in template files (or are too lazy to do that).
Just activate the plugin and it will automatically show the_excerpts in your homepage, archives and search results.
It tries to display your custom excerpt text and if it doesn’t find it it will show an automatically generated excerpt.
You can also define excerpt length, custom read more link and attach a thumbnail.


  1. Upload the zipped file to yoursite/wp-content/plugins
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
