Creating post excerpts
The excerpt is what is displayed when a post is shared on social media or displayed in a list of posts (like on the blog).
Without setting the excerpt, your website will display the opening paragraph by default.
Sometimes you may want the excerpt to be something specific, or the default excerpt isn't appropriate because it's a quote, or just because you prefer to share something else along with the post (see image below).
You can change the excerpt by opening the "excerpt" section in the post settings (see image).
From there, set your excerpt, and then click "Publish" or "Update".
