This tutorial will show you how to change your blog excerpt size (length). We use an excerpt for a consistent look to your blog home page (and categories). 

IMPORTANT: Excerpts will hide all formatting and page elements from view, but will show on the full post view.

  1. Go to Appearance > Customize > Post Options
  2. Find the Excerpt Length setting and adjust it to your preference. Note: the count represents word-count.
  3. Click the Publish button.
