What happened? How do I recover the excerpt field? The blog I need help with is stewart-little.com. October 24, 2010 at 4:48 pm #532422 justjenniferModerator Is there any chance you disabled it accidentally in the “screen options” tab just above the Post? October 24, 2010 at 4:51 pm #532423 1tessModerator Emeritus 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.

I don’t know how I disabled it…or what caused the box to become unchecked, but that is the problem. Thanks! October 24, 2010 at 5:11 pm #532426 1tessModerator Emeritus It’s possibly not anything you did. As I said, it has happened several times to other people. October 25, 2010 at 6:30 am #532475 justjenniferModerator WordPress.com happens. :) Glad it was something easily solved.
