An excerpt in WordPress is a term used for article summary with a link to the whole entry.
An excerpt can be auto generated by a WordPress theme or by using the
<!--more--> tag inside the post content.
Another way to create excerpts for a WordPress post is by entering the summary of an article in Excerpt field on Post Edit screen.
This field is not displayed in the post edit screen by default.
To enable it a user needs to click on Screen Options button on the top right corner of post edit screen and then enable it.

– Show the excerpt: none, without title, with title, title only or show always.
– Use X words from the post content or WordPress excerpt.
– Set the font family or use the default (inherit).
– Set the font size the default is 16px.
– Set the background color for the excerpts (see here for the short codes), this short code [bg=”x”] will remove the background picture.
– Show not: no excerpt is displayed
– Without title: only the content will be displayed
