Support » Theme: Gillian » Code to show excerpts instead of full postts on blog page

  • Hello,
    Is there a sample child theme to start with & how can I get the posts to display excerpts on the blog page instead of full posts….I looked through many tutorials on web & none were helpful so need bit of guidance on how to get excerpts with read more link on my blog page.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi @tarkham,

    The best way to get excerpts with Read More links with Gillian is to add in your own More Tags to individual posts. In Gillian, the default text for these links will appear as ‘Continue reading’.

    This how-to for using the More Tag is from WordPress.com support documentation, but the instructions under ‘Adding and customizing the More Tag’ should also apply to your WordPress.org dashboard. Please note that the info in the second half, ‘Using the More Tag with Content Options’, is WordPress.com specific; you will not find these options with Gillian in your WordPress.org dashboard.
