Currently, my theme does not yet support this problem.

Dusty, you know the WP editor has the “more” tag to break the post into excerpts?

To shorten a post on the homepage and have a “read more” link.

Please log in to Dashboards > Post > add new > import content.
Then, in the content frame , please choose a section of text you want, and click on “More” button. Please take a view below:

well that will work, but what i’m trying to do is to have part of paragraph 4 appear on the homepage but when a reader clicks on read more .. the starting will be from paragraph 1

Please replace following code:

<span class="item-permalink">
<a title="<?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php echo get_permalink(); ?>"><?php _e( 'Read more', 'wallpress' ); ?></a>
</span>

With the code:

<span class="item-permalink">
<a title="<?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php echo get_permalink(); ?>#more-<?php echo get_the_ID(); ?>"><?php _e( 'Read more', 'wallpress' ); ?></a>
</span>

And the readers of your site will continue reading in break point.
