Reply To: Change number of words in the excerpt

Hello,

This actually doesn’t really have anything to do with the theme, specifically. If you do not specify an excerpt yourself when editing a post, WordPress will automatically take the first 55 words and use that.

Here’s a nifty little plugin I just found that I think will help you out: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easy-excerpt/
