Excerpt in WordPress -9

Excerpt in WordPress -9

the_excerpt () function is used in WordPress for article summary and WordPress post with a link to the whole content. In another way we can create our own customize function with button and permalink also and the code is given below:

//This function is used to get particular character

function get_excerpt($count)


    $permalink = get_permalink($post->ID);

    $excerpt = get_the_content();

    $excerpt = strip_tags($excerpt);

    $excerpt = substr($excerpt, 0, $count);

    $excerpt = substr($excerpt, 0, strripos($excerpt, ” “));

    $excerpt = ‘<p>’ . $excerpt . ‘… </br><a href=”‘ . $permalink . ‘”>Read More >></a></p>’;

    return $excerpt;


Now get_excerprt(50) is the user friendly function we can call anywhere by passing the number of character as parameter and do the css of button also.
