WP doesn't automatically generate post excerpts.  You will need to either install a plugin that does it for you, or you'll need to manually add an excerpt to each post. 

If you don't see the "Excerpt" field in the page/post editor, you may need to enable it in the "Screen Options" dropdown (In the top right corner of the editor screen).

Thanks for your response. I just remembered you've solved this type of issue before.

There was a time last year when I needed such assistance and you gave a code to put in the content.php file and it worked. But I tried it now and it didn't work. The link is below:

Secondly, what did you use on your own demo page.

Thank you.

The time that you were having a problem before, it was in the actual page/post content.  Your site is currently using Masonry for the content on the home page, and Masonry needs to have post excerpts set manually, or it will use the full post content.  The demo content uses manually created excerpts.

Excellent.  If the issue is resolved, I'll go ahead and lock this thread now.
