    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.

    Is there any chance you disabled it accidentally in the “screen options” tab just above the Post?

    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.

    Hi justjennifer—should have refreshed…

    Yep.

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

    Thanks!

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

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