Using Excerpts (?) With An Image

Hi everyone,

 

I was visiting a website that uses Wordpress and noticed that instead of the full content of the post, they used what I presume to be an excerpt with an image and was wondering how I can do that? I know there's some code switching to do but wasn't sure how and not disrupt my previous entries that did show the entire post (and have no excerpts).

 

Here is the site in question: http://blu-news.com

 

I assume it's an excerpt but maybe I'm wrong?

 

Anyway, I'm hoping any Wordpress vets can help me out with this... :)

 

Thanks,

Brian

If you don't want to deal with modifying your theme or affecting previous posts, then just use the MORE tag for the post you want to appear as an excerpt. Just create your post as normal and where you want it to break insert <!--more--> , everything above this will display. Everything after can be viewed in the full post page by clicking the read more button/link or the post title.

Yeah, I thought about doing that as well. For my one blog I'm using the excerpt method (don't have that many posts to change) but for my main blog, I may got that route.

 

Thanks for the suggestion Dick. :)
