Use the Excerpt Box to make post summaries look better


I’ve always disliked how post summaries look on the front page.

It just takes your post and jams it all together without paragraph breaks. It’s not very useful.

I found out today that you can fix that. All you have to do is fill in the Excerpt box on the post. The one here

When you do that, the summary of the post will use the text in the excerpt instead of what is in your post.

Keep that in mind the next time you create a post. Create a compelling summary and it’ll draw more clicks.
