Wordpress problems
« on: February 06, 2013, 11:29:39 am »

Does ANYBODY here know how to make the "excerpt" thing in WordPress blogs? I have read the tutorials until I am blue in the face, and it simply does not make any sense. I can't make it work.

Help would be much appreciated.

Did you ever get it sorted out? Go and edit your post (or create a new one). There's a semi-hidden drop-down in the upper right hand corner called "Screen Options". Click it, and in the box that drops down, make sure "Excerpt" is checked.

If it's a page, WP doesn't allow for excerpts in pages by default, but there's a plugin that will enable it:

No, I've never figured it out. I've looked at all the options, toggles, tutorials and so forth... and I'm more confused than ever.  I can't download the plugin myself, since I don't have any control over the site... I'll have to ask the guy who does.
