    Hi, I’m putting a website together using the cavas theme and obviously have a blog page… however, one of the posts is very long – I just want to show an excerpt (a few lines) with a more button, but on the blog page it shows the whole post. How can I change it so that it shows an intro? Thanks. PS. Although I’m a novice I’ve already built a simple website and am now onto my second, this time with e-commerce – SCARY!

    Hi Jason,

    Great to hear you’re already onto your second website.

    If you use the blog page template that comes with canvas this will show the excerpt by default. Check out tutorial 4 on the Canvas masterclass http://jamiemarsland.wpengine.com/canvas-v5-masterclass/

    Let me know if that makes sense,

    Jamie

    Thanks, though it only worked on Magazine view, which is fine
