Using Custom Post Excerpts in Business Identity

Custom post excerpts are supported on the Business Identity home page, as well as all post archive pages throughout sites using the theme. This post will demonstrate how to effectively use them.


Before starting, you’ll want to make sure that the custom excerpts panel is turned on from within your post’s edit screen:

business-identity-wpcom-17

Once you’ve made sure that you have the Excerpt box turned on, adding excerpts into your site is a very simple process. For each post that you’d like to use a custom excerpt, add in text or HTML into the excerpt box.

Once you’ve published your post, the custom excerpt that you’ve written will be shown throughout the site on all areas that use excerpts, including the home page and archive pages.

Custom Excerpt Example

Technical Note: If no custom excerpt has been set for a post, then an automatic one will be generated with the first 55 words of the post.
