Displaying Excerpts

The excerpt is a summary or description of a post, WordPress includes an excerpt form field which you can use while creating or editing a post. Usually people forget to set this value, so Network Latest Posts allows you to create an extract from the content of the posts.

There are some optional parameters: excerpt_length and excerpt_trail the first one sets the number of words the excerpt should display and the second receives two values, text or image, text is used by default, it adds “…more” to the end of the excerpt’s paragraph. When image is used, it will display the excertp_trail.png image located inside the plugin’s img folder.

Shortcode usage, 1.- Default, 2.- Auto-excerpt, 3.- Optional parameters:
