Installation is similar to any other plugin that you would install.
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/multiple-excerpt-lengthsdirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
- Use the Dashboard->Settings->Excerpt Lengths screen to configure the plugin
What is the default length of excerpts set by the plugin if I don’t specify any length in the plugin settings?
By default, just like WordPress, the plugin sets the excerpts at 55 words.
How and in what cases will I have excerpts on the Front Page?
This is determined by the theme in use. Some themes allow you to display a Blog Posts sections on the front page, and some don’t. You should consult your theme developer for any queries regarding this.
What is the maximum length allowed?
The plugin allows a maximum length of 999 words – but it wouldn’t really be an “excerpt” with as many words.
*Added support for Search pages
