WP blog settings
I would like to know where and how do I change the settings so my posts are shown as summaries in the main page. I think I need to go to wp admin? But how do I go there in the first place? Please help~
The blog I need help with is littlegardenweb.wordpress.com.
The Reading Settings page summary setting changes the RSS feed display only and does not impact the posts on the site.
*Replace NAME_OF_BLOG withe the actual name of your blog in that URL.
If you want to display only post excerpts on the front page or the blogs 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.
Please Read Go Back and Edit Posts https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/#go-back-and-edit-posts and be sure to click Update to publish the after your editing.
Alternatively, you can switch to using a theme that automatically displays front page excerpts. This is a list of only SOME active themes on WordPress.com that use the excerpt instead of full post content. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/theme-with-automatic-excerpts?replies=13#post-1396410

think I need to go to wp admin? But how do I go there in the first place?
You must be logged in under the exact same username that registered the site to be able to access the site. The Admin login link to the dashboard for every blog hosted by wordpress.COM is:
*Replace NAME_OF_BLOG in that URL with the actual name of your blog.
I recommend bookmarking that link or memorizing it.
Thank you timethief! You were a great help.
I’m happy to read that. Best wishes with your site.
