What is an Excerpt?
An excerpt is a brief summary of a blog post or page. Excerpts appear in blog archives and help users decide whether or not to click on a post.
More About Excerpts
Typically, excerpts are generated automatically from the first paragraph(s) of a blog post or page. However, you can also write your own. When you edit a post or page, you’ll see an option to write a short summary of the content.
