    Hello, I noticed that after installing GeneratePress, the Excerpt box is gone from my Post Editor. Is there a way to get it back? I noticed that for new posts I can use the Page Header component to create an excerpt, but what happens if I want to create an excerpt but don’t want it to appear in the header?

    Thank you.

    Hmmm, it also doesn’t appear that “add to excerpt” actually added the content as an excerpt:

    My blog is set to display Excerpt not full post, but it’s not picking that content up:

    Argh, here’s links to the screenshots:

    At the top right of your page when editing, you should see a “Screen Options” button.

    If you click it, you’ll see some options with check boxes next to them. Make sure the “Excerpt” box is checked.

    Then the excerpt meta box should show 🙂


    Ah, thank you!

    However, there’s still the issue of the excerpt content not getting pulled over from the Page Header box, any suggestions on that one?

    That it strange.

    Do you have the more tag or a custom excerpt set for that page? Either of those might tell the Page Header option to back off.
