But that’s about it–no excerpt module is visible. Is there possibly a way to add this to the post edit page? My theme is Coraline, if that makes any difference The blog I need help with is doylebarnett.wordpress.com. February 20, 2011 at 5:42 am #572429 sl1kMember Hi there! At the top of the screen while in the post editor you will see “screen options” in the upper right of the screen click on it then choose “Excerpt” February 20, 2011 at 9:09 am #572439 panaghiotisadamMember And the theme does make a difference: Coraline doesn’t support custom excerpts. See here which themes do: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/the-excerpt-function/ Or use the more tag instead: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/ February 20, 2011 at 7:30 pm #572535 doylebarnettMember Thanks very much to sl1k and panaghiotisadam!
