How to Activate and Take Control of Excerpts on Your WordPress Site

If you’d like to show excerpts on your site’s homepage, but your theme isn’t set up for that, then you could dig into your code and change it.

But if you don’t like digging into your code, or you don’t have the first idea about digging into your code, then the Auto Excerpt Everywhere plugin can do it for you.

Here’s what it allows you to do:

  • Turn excerpts on
  • Control the length of excerpts
  • Change the “Read more” text
  • Control thumbnails – off/on plus size control

You can take a look at the settings and the result here.
