Working With Teasers

WordPress supports creating an excerpt or “teaser” for your Post. If your content is long and you would like to display only the first part on your blog’s homepage, you can use the “more” tag.

Excerpt Basics

  1. Create a new Post
  2. Type in or copy and paste your content.
  3. Decide where you want the “Read More” link. This initial content is also called the “Teaser”.
  4. Click the “Insert More Tag” in the toolbar. (See image below.)
  5. This will insert the “More” quicktag.
  6. When you are finished with your Post, publish it.
  7. On your Blog’s main page, you will see your post with the “Continue Reading…” link.
