Changing Post Excerpts on Category Pages

Recommended Posts

rjharding

Hello all, Anybody know how to easily change the excerpts that display on category pages? Currently, they just grab the first 100 words or so, but some of that wording just doesn't belong in my particular instance. 2mnj21w.png

Do you want to write the excerpts yourself for the posts you publish? There is a way to do that using the "Excerpt" box in the post editor.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Catrina, I remember seeing a box to place an excerpt on my other websites, but with this particular one the box is gone... There is nowhere within the post editor to change the excerpt of a post anymore. Was this a change by Wordpress?

Well since WP (I think) removed that box from the post editor, I needed to install the plugin "Excerpt Editor" and that allows you to specify the excerpt within the plugin editor. Kind of annoying, but it gets the job done.
