This plugin will help solve several issues using the Excerpt instead of the Content on a WordPress blog. A lot of WordPress blogs will use the excerpt on several pages other than the single post page to keep the blog clean and duplicate content down. With Cybers Excerpt Plugin you can take this to a new level, including the following capabilities.
- Change the word count for the excerpt
- Set a custom word count by page type, such as, Index, Archive, Tag, Category or Search Results.
- Applies a more link at the end of each post that includes the Title.
Here is an example of the transformation from full content to a custom CybersExcerpt on a Home Page.
This first image is of a post with the standard full content displaying for each post on the home page. This style takes up a lot of room on the main page and gives the reader the exact duplicate content that will appear on the Post page.
Using the standard Excerpt can be very helpful in reducing the size and duplicate content on a site. Notice that the formatting is off a little as the Excerpt does not handle the paragraph and breaks very well, and there is no link to read more at the bottom of the post. The Standard length is 55 words.
Here is the same page formatted with the Cybe Excerpt. The default length is 50 words but can be easily changed in the Settings option within WordPress without changing any code. Also notice that we have taken care of the paragraph and break formatting to give the excerpt and much cleaner look. And last, but not least, there is a link at the bottom of the post to direct the reader to the full post.
