Hi Is there a way to customise each post excerpt? For example - whether to place a thumbnail on the left or right - whether to use a full size image - excerpt length and editing excerpt content? Thanks!

You can manually place your own excerpts using "the excerpt" panel on the post edit screen. Changing the style however would be different although potentially possible with either/both css and javascript but not sure how to attack it off the top of my head.

WP decided to start hiding a bunch of settings by default for some reason. You have to click the "Screen Options" link in the top right and select the "Excerpt" checkbox. That should make the excerpt field visible when you scroll down.

Fantastic, thank you - I would never have found that!
