An excerpt refers to a summary of a post or article. The Excerpt is generated automatically by taking the first few lines of the Content. However, you can also manually create or customize the Excerpt for each post.

Sometimes on the blog page, you might prefer to show the full Content instead of the excerpt text or vice versa. ColorMag allows displaying either the Full Text or the excerpt text. [Available in ColorMag Pro]
