I don’t want the whole entire long post appearing on my blog. I want it so that only a portion of it can be read and the link has to be opened to finish reading it. The blog I need help with is thomasteller.com.

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. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/ Alternatively you can switch to using a theme that automatically displays front page excerpts. This is a list of active themes on WordPress.com that use the excerpt instead of full post content. Here are the themes that do provide that feature > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/theme-with-automatic-excerpts?replies=13#post-1396410 Author Posts The topic ‘Size of my posts’ is closed to new replies.
