Page Excerpt


This plugin adds the same functionality of the excerpt feature in posts to pages.


  • The Page Excerpt Box


  1. Upload page-excerpt.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Use page excerpt box as you would in a post


How do I use this?

On the create (or edit) pages page, you will see a box called ‘Page Excerpt’. It allows you to put in a short summary of your content. You can then call it using the <?php the_excerpt(); ?> function within the loop

I have a question you didn’t answer!

Post a message on PageExcerpt’s page and leave a message in the comments if you have a question that needs answering!
