Custom slider captions

    Hello,

    I’m wondering, is it possible to enter a custom caption on the slider instead of the post excerpt? If so, how?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you can create a custom excerpt in the area below the main editor when editing a post/page.

    This will (I think, but could be wrong) also affect the excerpt areas on the main page and the category archives pages.

    I don’t see the area where I can change it. I tried description, but that didn’t do anything. Here is a screenshot:

    Click and expand Screen Options at the top right corner and select Excerpt thing. (I’m not sure what it is labelled)

    These are the screen options I have. Do you know which it is?

    I just found the “excerpts” panel on the posts… but the screenshots above are from pages I would like to feature in the slider. Is the custom excerpt possible for pages?

    Add this function to your child theme functions.php file:

    add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );

    Remember to enclose it with the php code, if you don’t yet have a functions.php file.

    If you don’t have one, the entire code should look like this:

    <?php
    add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );
    ?>
