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:

Vijay Kumar:
Add to functions.php file:

add_filter( ‘excerpt_more’, ‘dw_excerpt_more’ );
function custom_excerpt_length( $length ) {
return 20;
add_filter( ‘excerpt_length’, ‘custom_excerpt_length’, 999 );

Size “return” set as you need.
