Support » Theme: Astra » Blog function on my website

  • I have a website that I want to run a semi regular blog on. My blog section of the website is here: https://djalkemy.co.uk/news

    So, what I want, is a way to put a blog entry in and not have the whole of the blog entry showing in full. I don’t want people to have to scroll down the page for an age to get to different blog entries. I’m wondering if there’s some sort of plugin that I can install so that page could have say, a picture and a short introduction to that blog entry with a “read more” clickable link that will open up that blog entry in full. Is that even possible? I hope this make sense but as I see it at the moment, if I put a blog entry on that page, it will show the whole entry in full and once I get to the point of like 5-10 blog entries, the person using the page will have to scroll quite a bit to get to older blog entries and I think it will look terrible.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • Hi @alkemy007,

    There’s a feature on Astra for that. Check out this screenshot, please.

    I hope it will help.

    Hey Herman, thanks for the reply. I must stress that Visual Composer was used to make the majority of my website and I’m just unsure of how to implement the excerpt function on the page I want to use it. I have been stuck for weeks now and nobody seems to have the answer.

    Hi @alkemy007,

    So, did the screenshot I shared help you?

    ​Please let us know if you need further assistance or if I am missing something.

    Kind regards,
    Herman 🙂
