How to Add an Excerpt to Your Post

There are 2 ways to add an excerpt to your posts, the first is by using the More Block, the second is by manually adding one through the sidebar.

Method #1: The More Block

To add an excerpt to your post, you’ll need to have one paragraph at the start of your post content, followed by a More Block.

You should end up with your editor looking something like this:

Method #2: Manual Excerpt

Alternatively, you can also add an excerpt from the sidebar of the Block Editor. While your sidebar is open, click on Post tab at the top of the sidebar. Look for the Excerpt panel, then open it and fill it up.

Note that the Excerpt panel is not always available for Custom Post Types.
