Its broke my website !

The auto excerpt cannot properly cut on some element, if its broke. Please use read more / post excerpt. It can be activated from screen option.

What happen if i wrote an excerpt for the post ?

It will used, instead of the automatically generated one.


Works really well

I’ve used Excerpt on a few sites now, and it works really well. No more messing around with the <more> tag. As long as you set this up carefully it is robust and ensures the teaser text is formed the way you want.
