This tutorial will show you how to change your blog summaries to use excerpts instead. This gives a more consistent look for your blog summaries. Please note that WordPress excerpts will strip all formatting and images from your content until you view the full post.

  1. Go to Appearance > Customize > Theme Options
  2. Find the Use Excerpts setting and check the box next to it.
  3. In addition to excerpts, you can also change how many words to show for excerpts. Look for the Excerpt Size setting and enter how many words you want to show. You can also use the up/down arrow (hover over the field) on the field to change the count by increments of 5 words.
  4. Click the Publish button.
