Template: Display Excerpt
Xidipity WordPress Theme Knowledge Base Template Content Header Image

An excerpt is a short summary or description of the blog post it refers to. Unless otherwise directed, WordPress will create an excerpt using the first thirty five characters of the content. Xidipity provides a recommended method which gives authors the ability to create custom excerpts using the “insert excerpt” toolbar selection located under the miscellaneous ( ​ ​ ) options. The purpose of this template is to display the available excerpt with an optional read more link.
