    I’ve used boilerplate_excerpt_length to change the default length. How can i create and excerpt with an alternative length for different pages?

    The code will vary depending on what you are trying to achieve.

    That function, which can be found starting line 259 of the function.php file, has a built-in default of 40, but you can pass any length in that you want:

    function boilerplate_excerpt_length( $length ) {
    	return 40;

    So, you can use any method of determining which page you are on in your post/page templates, then simply pass that length value to the boilerplate_excerpt_length function.

    Hope this helps,
