Show manual excerpt of WordPress post (Pro version)

Content Views helps you to show the excerpt of WordPress post easily without coding.
In the free version, it will show the first N words (N is editable) of post content. In Pro version, you can show the manual excerpt of a post.
Manual excerpt helps you to set your own excerpt for a post which is independent to post content. If it is not enabled yet, you can enable and use it easily:

Then you can show the manual excerpt with Content Views Pro easily:

Content Views Pro - show manual excerpt

There are 3 options you can do with the manual excerpt:

  • show its original content
  • trim its length to N words (N is 20 in above image)
  • ignore it (to show the first N words of post content)

Notices

The manual excerpt is not enabled for Page by default. To enable manual excerpt for Page, please add this code to file functions.php in the theme’s folder:

/**
 * Enables the Excerpt meta box in Page edit screen.
 */
add_action( 'init', 'cvp_theme_add_excerpt_support_for_pages' );
function cvp_theme_add_excerpt_support_for_pages() {
	add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );
}

Thank you,
