Summary of this Tutorial:

The first method is by using the excerpt meta box.

If you are creating a new post, go to screen options and make sure the excerpt box is checked, then you can add your post excerpt.

Another way to add the excerpt is by using the more tag.

Just add the excerpt in the post area and then click on the more button and a line will show under the excerpt.

The third way to do it is by installing and activating the Advanced Excerpt Button.

Then go to Settings, Excerpt to continue.

You can configure how you want the excerpt to look on your posts and we can look on our site to see the changes in action.

    Under categories, I have posts as excerpts. When you do a search and the posts that come up, they are full posts, not excerpts of the posts. It used to be that search posts were excerpts. Somehow that has gotten undone. Can anyone help?
