Can anyone tell me how to only display a summary of blog posts on the “Posts” page? I’ve checked the Settings tab, but the only place where I can choose to display a summary of the post is when it appears in an RSS feed. For people browsing, some of our posts may seem too long and can make them lose interest. How can I get a summary of the post to display when people land on the “Posts” page?
You can use the more tag to tell the theme where to break a post for display on summary pages. See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/
Great! Thanks Devin. I wasn’t sure if it was a WordPres issue or a theme-specific one.
Glad Devin could help.
You can also edit includes > loop-index.php and find this code
$current_post['content'] = get_the_content(__('Read more','avia_framework').'<span class="more-link-arrow"> →</span>');
Replace it with
$current_post['content'] = the_content(__('Read more','avia_framework').'<span class="more-link-arrow"> →</span>');
