Need Help With inserting excerpts in Wordpress Post


I am sure this has been answered before. Just cannot find the info.

I have my first wordpress post on Dreamhost.
Post is fine but I want to insert an excerpt into the post just so visitors can click for the entire post.
Just offering first few lines/teaser.

There are several articles and videos out there but none of the screen shots out there look like what Dreamhost Wordpress looks like.

Any help to insert Excerpts is appreciated.
Thank you


First you need to add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file or a site-specific plugin. add_post_type_support( ‘page’, ‘excerpt’ ); This code modifies the default WordPress content type ‘page’ to add support for excerpts. You can head over to create a new page or edit an existing page.

Appearance>> Customize>> Content Layout>> Select Post Excerpts.

Just now, My site Techsmarti has moved from full content to excerpts for more details please check the once.


Good dear. I am also working on it but getting some error.
