    How does one edit how many lines the blog previews? On my main blog page, each blog entry lists the entire thread, but I’d rather just show a few lines and then the “Read More” button.

    Hey,

    please use the read more tag to control the excerpt length. If you work in with the visual editor use the “read more” tag button (top toolbar – the icon shows two pages and a dividing line). If you work with the html editor you can insert the tag directly by using:

    <!--more-->

    i.e. like

    Can’t believe I missed that. I am on holiday and don’t have all my resources with me. Didn’t even bother to check the dummy content provided.

    Hello there,

    this post is already a month old, but I wonder if there is a way to do this automatic, it’s rather anoying to do this when writing.

    No – the more shortcode gives you more control over the excerpt but you need to set it manually.
