Add excerpts to WordPress Pages

By default, wordpress allows you to add custom post excerpts. You can easily add a piece of code in your theme functions.php file to extend this functionality to pages.

Controlling excerpts would help you to increase the post/page SEO score. Keep in mind that this is really important!

How to add excerpts to WordPress Pages

You will have to add the code below in your theme functions.php file.

function add_excerpt_to_pages() 
     add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );
add_action('init', 'add_excerpt_to_pages');

Once you saved the file, go to your existing/new pages and hit refresh.

From the top of the screen click Screen Options and enable the Excerpt checkbox.

You will now be able to add Page excerpts.
