Let’s talk about the plugin Advanced Excerpts for WordPress. This is a great plugin if you find your theme does not support shortening of blog previews on the blog page.
All you have to do is install this nifty plugin and it will do the rest. You can further extend the results under Settings — Excerpts.
I have used this theme before for the free version of Astra. Although I admit, I have the pro version and I’m generally using Elementor too.
I have run into situations where some clients only want a minimal setup and no recurring costs. So using the free Astra is a good compromise – unless they buy their own version.
And using advanced excerpts allows you to trim those pesky pages otherwise reserved as a feature of the premium version.
Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.
