    Hi there,

    I am re-organizing my site with a new theme, and I am trying to find a way so that within a page (ex. Writing) only the title, image and possibly first sentence or two is displayed once you click a menu option, rather than have the entire post shown in order of publication (similarly to how it would look on the home page) The website I am working with is: https://sashazeidler.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is sashazeidler.wordpress.com.

    Note that “the more tag” is not a theme-specific feature. There is also no global setting for it.

    Also, note that the setting here > Settings > Reading is only for the RSS Feed summary and does not affect the posts.

    If you want to display only excerpts on the front 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.

    Alternatively, you can switch to using a theme that automatically displays front page excerpts. https://wordpress.com/themes/filter/blog-excerpts
