Edit Email in Follow Blog Widget
Hi – I am trying to edit the email that is sent to my subscribers via the Follow Blog Widget. Right now, the entire blog post is showing on the email. I’d like just a preview with a button to click to ‘read more’ so it takes them to the blog so I can track who is reading/visiting. Please help, I can’t figure out where the email settings are for this widget!
The blog I need help with is strawberriesandstretchmarks.wordpress.com.
Most newer themes display excerpts by default. This Themes showcase filter lists all themes that display excerpts by default: https://wordpress.com/themes/filter/blog-excerpts
Most newer themes also have the Content Options panel in the Customizer https://en.support.wordpress.com/customizer/, which allows you to choose between displaying the full post or an excerpt.
If you want to display only post excerpts on the front page or the blogs page of the blog followed by read more links, you can insert “the more tag” into each post prior to publication.
The read more tag can be inserted once only into any post to change the front page or main page for posts display from full post to an excerpt. The split in the text does not display to you in preview mode but it will be there after the post is published.
Please Read Go Back and Edit Posts https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/#go-back-and-edit-posts and be sure to click Update to publish the after your editing.
For other ways to split content see > https://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/
However, when it comes to what’s emailed to subscribers it is drawn from our RSS Feed for published posts and we can select to display only a summary and not the full post.
