Display the excerpt on a page with WordPress

You may have notice that pages don’t have the option to create an excerpt on the page while a post does in WordPress?

WordPress does not display the excerpt option for pages though you can add this feature by adding a few lines of PHP to the functions file.

By adding the following PHP to the functions file you should see the except meta box being displayed on the page when in editing mode.

function please_add_excerpt_support_for_pages() {
add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );
add_action( 'init', 'please_add_excerpt_support_for_pages' );

If you don’t, check the screen options for the page and make sure the excerpt box has been ticked.
