Post Excerpts

The WordPress Excerpt is an optional summary or description of a post; in short, a post summary.

The Excerpt has two main uses:

  1. It replaces the full content in RSS feeds when the option to display summaries is selected in Dashboard › Settings › Reading.
  2. Depending on the WordPress theme, it can be displayed in places where quick summaries are preferable to full content:
    • Search results
    • Tag archives
    • Category archives
    • Monthly archives
    • Author archives
