This seems like a simple task to achieve but I can’t find a way of doing it. I want to write long articles on my WordPress website but I don’t want the full article showing on the home page (my home page is my Blog). Is there a way of limiting the amount of words shown on the homepage? I know it can be done because I’ve seen it on many WP websites.
I see you already solved it, but just wanted to let you know if you ever work on a WordPress theme, there’s a handy function called the_excerpt() that will only show a certain number of words from a post, with a “Read More” link. Link below if you’re interested!
