Adjust Excerpt Length

    Hi I’m attempting to make the excerpt length longer, I’ve searched the forum but couldn’t figure out how to limit the responses to Alyeska, so most questions on excerpts are in support answers I can’t read.

    I’m just showing posts on the homepage, but want them to show more of the post before cutting off to the read more.

    By default, WordPress will take the first 55 words of your post to use as the excerpt. Or, you can manually write out the excerpt for any post within the meta box titled “Excerpt” when editing the given post.

    Note: If you do not see the “Excerpt” meta box when editing a post, it means you have it hidden. Go to “Screen Options” at the top right corner of the screen and select to show it.

    Additionally, if you search over on, there are several cool, little plugins you can explore for messing with the excerpt.
