Hello, I am not very good at coding, but am looking for the code snippet I would need to place in my blog.liquid file and between what two sets of default code to place it to make it appear at the bottom of three lines of my blog posts.

Hey there Liam!

Adam here from Shopify.

If I understand correctly, you are looking for an excerpt to show for your posts on your blog page.

To do so, you should be able to add an excerpt for each post, and copy and paste the first 3 lines, or whatever else you wanted to say. 

It will then only show that, and then a "read more" link underneath in most cases.

This can differ from theme to theme of course.

Here is where you can locate the "Add Excerpt" option:

Let me know if that works for you or not.

Have an awesom day and we'll chat soon :)

Hi Adam,

 

Wondering how you do the "Read More..." for collection descriptions?

 

Any help would be appreciated
