Support » Fixing WordPress » Add post excerpt to page

  • I’ve read quite a lot about how to do what should be an easy task but haven’t found the answer.

    I want to add post excerpts to this page on my website but everything I’ve read indicates that all html is lost when using the standard WordPress excerpt code. I looked for a plugin that would do this and maintain the html but have not found one yet that explains in a non-techee way how to use it.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    In the dashboard:
    Settings>Reading you can specify this page to be your Posts page and the posts will show here.

    By default it’s usually the latest full post followed by the next one. To show just the excerpts, that either has to be a setting that your particular theme has already built in, or you will need to edit the template file in your theme that handles the posts. Often that’s index.php, but the actual content part that needs to change from the_content to the_excerpt may be buried in a template part.
