    Currently in the WordPress Reader a person can read my entire post. I’d like to change it so that they will only get a partial view and then have to click to my blog to read the entire post. I’ve been searching and can’t find the answer.

    What do I do?

    The blog I need help with is www.howisbradley.com.

    Go to > Settings > Reading and select “summary” rather than “full text” for the RSS Feed entry and then click “save changes” .

    For each article in a feed, show
    _ Full text
    _ Summary

    That’s exactly what I do to drive my followers to my blog.

    If you want to display only excerpts on the front page of the blog followed by read more links, you can insert “the more tag” into each post prior to publication.

    Hi there!

    I selected that option, and it’s still showing the full post on my page instead of the summary.

    Is it my blog theme? How can I change this?

    I provided instructions for the RSS feed, not for the posts themselves. The setting here > Settings > Reading is only for the RSS Feed summary and does not affect the posts. If you want to display only excerpts on the front page of the blog followed by read more links, you can insert “the more tag” into each post prior to publication.

    Alternatively you can switch to using a theme that automatically displays front page excerpts. This is a list of active themes on WordPress.com that use the excerpt instead of full post content. Here are the themes that do provide that feature > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/theme-with-automatic-excerpts?replies=13#post-1396410
