creating blog summaries on home page of booklite theme

  1. I just changed blog design to booklite theme. Under Settings>Reading, there is this option:

    For each article in a feed, show
    Full text or
    Summary

    I chose Summary and saved the page several times, but the entire blog post is still shown on the front page. I'd like a small summary then an opp for readers to click "read more" or "next" or something. I don't want to have to add additional pages to each blog post. How can I create a summary?

    The blog I need help with is thebayarean.com.

  2. If you want to display only excerpts on the front page of the blog followed by read more links, you can insert "the more tag" into each post prior to publication.

  3. This setting is only for the RSS Feed and does not affect the blog length on the front page of the blog.
    Go to > Settings > Reading and select "summary" rather than "full text" for the RSS Feed entry and then click "save changes" .

    For each article in a feed, show
    _ Full text
    _ Summary

  4. Thank you! This was the extra step I was looking for.
