i only want excerpts to show - NOT the whole post

  1. I'm trying to create a new site (it currently just has tester info on it) but I'd like to only have the main page show excerpts of each post - that way people only have to read the full story if they want to click to see more. I see when creating a new post there is a place to write the excerpt, yet it's still just showing up as the full post. anyone know how to fix it??

    The blog I need help with is lifeinnica.wordpress.com.

  2. You could use the more tag. Which splits the post.

  3. thanks, i've been checking out that option - but I was hoping to use just an excerpt so i can sum up more stories for those who want a short and sweet update. I see that it's a possibility...i'm wondering if the theme i chose is creating the problem?? is that even possible?

  4. We can't tell you what's possible on your blog without a link to it, starting with http.

  5. thank you!! that really helped.
