en WordPress.com Forums › Support Displaying Custom Excerpts Author Posts November 13, 2011 at 8:01 am #750533 jamesborrellMember 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… Link > http://jamesborrell.co.uk/ 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.

Take a look at this post by Panos which shows which support excerpts on the main post page.
