    How do I make my blog post appear as thumbnails or with a 'read more' sign?

    Hi everyone, I need help.

    How do I make my blogpost appear as thumbnails or with a 'read more' sign? Right now it displays the entire text and I dont like it.

     

    what free plugin can i use for social shares that do not have inbuilt adverts and annoying things?

     

    Thank you.

    I haven't used the Dara theme before, but one thing to try is put some content into the excerpt box OR use the "Read More" element to break up the content

     

    In regards to social shares - The adverts are usually only in the admin not the front end / what is posted. Are you looking for something where it will add buttons that people can share your posts or that you can push them out to your own social network pages when you post them?

    Thanks so much for your reply, Grateful.

    I don't know how to use the read more element. Do Do you think the problem
    lies with the theme? I could change it.

    Concerning the social share buttons, I need both. for me and site visitors
