How do you post a teaser message? (6 posts)

    I looked through the readme. Maybe it's there, but i'm not understanding what to do.
    <?php the_content() ?> enters the entire post. I just want to show the teaser(headline) of the message on a particular page and have the visitor click on the post to view the entire article.
    Can someone post the code that I would need to do this.
    Thanks a lot

    I forgot to include that I also tried <?php the_content("read more","0","blah.php") ?> both 0 and 1
    Still not working

    The funny thing is that I was just reading that topic, but I was looking for "teaser" overlooked the fact that "excerpt" meant the same thing. My mistake, but for the record I did search before I asked.
    Either way, thanks a lot Cena

    Glad to know I'm not the only one who has a problem with "teaser" vs. "excerpt". In my opinion an excerpt does not necessarily tease but ...never mind.

    akc - depends on how you use it... I use mine as an actual teaster/intro to the post itself by filling something in when I post. If I don't then it uses the first X number of words from the post itself (becomes a real excerpt at that point), which then causes the site to look funny since the opening paras get duplicated.
