How to create a summary of a post in WordPress?

WordPress gives you the options to create a summary (excerpt) of a post, as well as add a “More…” link to the post so that your visitors can click it and read the whole post.

To use these features for a new post, go to your blog’s admin area > Posts > Add New. To add the “More…” link to the post, click on Insert more tag┬áin the WYSIWYG editor menu above the message body.

If you prefer writing your posts in HTML mode, you can use the:

<!–more–>

tag instead. It should be added after the text of your post.

To create a summary for your post, write it in the Excerpt field.

Click Publish to save and publish your new post.
