Support » Fixing WordPress » Summary of post isn't showing

  • warustar


    Well, on the ‘Reading’ section under Settings in the dashboard of my blog, there is an option asking how you want your posts to show up on the main page. I selected ‘Summary’ rather than the full post showing. Yet, it STILL shows the whole post causing my home-page to be flooded and almost never ending because of how long it is. Is there a way I can fix this or is there a plug-in/extension I can use for it?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thought I’d give this thread a bump as I’m having the same problem. Any progress your end?

    That setting under Settings > Reading is for your RSS feed, not your website.

    If you want to display excerpts of your posts on your homepage, you need to use the_excerpt() function instead of the_content() in your index.php.
