I’ve looked at other forum posts to understand how to do this, but I’m still rather confused. On my main posts page (‘Blog’ tab), and the categorized posts (under the ‘media’ tab) I would like the articles posted to have only a small excerpt of text visible. Right now the full posts are in view, beginning to end, which has become a hassle to scroll through. What I want to have shown is the short excerpt with [Full article…] or something similar that directs readers to the full post.
Go here > Settings Reading and select “summary”
Syndication feeds show the most recent – items
For each article in a feed, show
Full text Summary
That’s for the RSS feed only and does not affect what display on the main page for posts in the blog.
