Screen Options, Excerpts

There is no check box for Excerpts in the Screen Options. This helps with descriptions in search results. Please advise
Thanks you
Robert

Hello Robert,

There is Excerpt checkbox in Screen Options for posts, I’ve just checked on my local West Pro install.

Pages don’t have excerpts by default, please check this WordPress Codex page:
https://codex.wordpress.org/Excerpt

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman I dont have one in mine when a page is open. I use this feature in Sydney Pro to add descriptions when someone is using search to find site content easier. http://marfl.com/no-excerpt.png When checked it shows up below content editor as empty field.http://marfl.com/sydney-excerpt.png

please advise
thank you

Hi Roman,

I found a fix…added to function.php: add_post_type_support( ‘page’, ‘excerpt’ );
