Configuring post excerpts throughout your theme

Excerpts are used to shorten your posts so that only part of the entry β€” usually the introduction or a summary of the post β€” is displayed, instead of the entire entry. Using excerpts is completely optional.

You can configure your theme to show the Full content of each post or an Excerpt from Theme Options β†’ Global Posts Options β†’ Content.



Create Excerpt Manually

The excerpt lenght can also be adjusted in some of our themes from that section or you can manually adjust the excerpt text for each post individually, by placing it in the Excerpt box.

Using the Classic Editor?

In the Classic Editor, the Excerpt box is hidden by default so you’ll have to enable it from the Screen Options section:


Remove […] string

By default, excerpt more string at the end is set to […]. To change excerpt more string or remove it, add the following code to functions.php file in your theme:

function new_excerpt_more( $more ) {
	return '[.....]';
add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');

Split posts when displaying Full Content

If you prefer to display full content of your posts, and still show only a portion of it on the home or archive pages, you can split it using the <!--more--> quicktag. Read more about more tag
