Welcome to WPBeginner and thank you for watching.
In this video we’ll customize WordPress excerpts. We’ll look at three ways to do this and the
first one is by using the excerpt meta box. If you are creating a new post, go to the screen
options and make sure the excerpt box is checked, then you can add your post excerpt here. Another way to add the excerpt by using
the more tag. Just add the excerpt in the post area and then click on the more button
and a line will show under the excerpt. Now when people see your post excerpt they
have the opportunity to click on the read more link to read the rest of your post. And the third way is to do this by installing
and activating the advanced excerpt button. Then go to Settings–>Excerpt to continue. Here you can configure how you want the excerpt
to look on your posts and we can lookat it on our site to see the changes in action. If you like this video click on the like button and go ahead and leave us a comment there, we’d love to hear from you. And subscribe to our YouTube channel to get the latest videos.
