The standard formatting of our WordPress installation is to display the entire blog post on the listing pages (the main blog page, a category page, etc.) There are a few different ways to change that so only part of the post shows up instead.
Yoast is a WordPress plugin that helps with
- search engine optimization (SEO)
- social media
Michigan Tech has installed the free version of Yoast, not the premium version. Yoast plugin information will show up at the bottom of each post and in the Post information in the right sidebar.
Relevanssi is a WordPress plugin that replaces the standard WordPress search with one that includes a lot of features and configurable options. Michigan Tech has installed the free version of Relevanssi, not the premium version.
Some of the features available include:
- sorting search results by relevance instead of date
- matching partial words
- setting the search or OR or AND
- highlighting search terms
