The Post Excerpt

Often, in the course of designing web sites, we encourage clients to take advantage of the built in post features of SiteControl (WordPress) to create a “fresh” home page with recent news, stories, promos, etc. However, many times we find ourselves with more information in a post than we’d like to display in the “teaser” on the homepage. Behold, the “excerpt” feature. This guide will tell you everything you’d ever want to know about the “excerpt” feature; what it is, how to use it, why its useful, etc.
