How to display Post Excerpts in blog Homepage / Front Page?

Nowadays most of the WordPress themes give you option to show either the full post or the post excerpt in the homepage, front page or archive pages. In case, your theme does not have any option but you want to show the full post, here is a tutorial to display excerpt in WordPress theme.

  • First of all, go to Dashboard > Appearance > Editor and find these following files – index.php, archieve.php & category.php. Your theme may not have one or more files. Don’t panic!
  • Now find the following code:
    <?php the_content(); ?>
  • Replace it with the follow and save the file.
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
