Excerpt field disappeared in Post

  1. I didn't change any of my settings, but for some reason, I no longer have the option of editing the excerpt field (which serves as a custom summary of a post).

    What happened? How do I recover the excerpt field?

    The blog I need help with is stewart-little.com.

  2. Is there any chance you disabled it accidentally in the "screen options" tab just above the Post?

  3. This has happened several times in the last couple of weeks:
    Just go up to screen options, on the top right of your screen and be sure the excerpt module is checked.

  4. Hi justjennifer—should have refreshed…

  5. Yep.

    I don't know how I disabled it...or what caused the box to become unchecked, but that is the problem.

    Thanks!

  6. It's possibly not anything you did. As I said, it has happened several times to other people.

  7. WordPress.com happens. :) Glad it was something easily solved.
