    Hi All,

    I currently have new posts publish to a blog page, and use the ‘more’ tag to make them shorter.

    Here’s a link to the blog page > http://jamesborrell.co.uk/blog/

    I also write custom excerpts and much prefer these, at the moment I manually put them on my home page which looks nicer but is time consuming…

    Is there a way of making the blog page display my custom excerpts? I searched a lot of sites for an answer, but it mostly comes up with .org information, which is a bit beyond me I’m afraid.

    Alternatively, is there a way of making my home page automatically retrieve each custom excerpt when I publish.

    Any thoughts much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    James

    The blog I need help with is jamesborrell.co.uk.

    There are a few themes here that will show your custom excerpts on the main blog page, but not all of them do. Take a look at this post by Panos which shows which support excerpts on the main post page.

    Thanks, I’ll have an experiment with some other themes.
