Using excerpt on homepage or shorter content?

  • Is it possible to specify that the excerpt gets shown on the blog homepage rather than a chunk of the content which is a bit too long for us?

    Or is it possible to shorten the amount of the post which is seen on the homepage?

    Thanks

    Hello

    You can use the <!--more--> tag in a post where you want to cut off the post and add a link to the entire article.

    Is that what you meant?

    ok I can see that has worked, although it would be quite good if the word “more” didnt actually appear, so the title of the post takes you to the full story instead…..?

    Hello

    To change the default “More” you have to go into index.php within the theme folder and look for the line that calls in the content and alter the “More” part.

    I use this:

    <?php the_content("Continue reading: " . the_title('', ' »', false)); ?>

    That gives me – Continue reading: the post title.

    Hope it helps.
