    Hey guys does anyone know of a good plugin that will automatically shorten your post on the homepage... The problem I run into is my entire blog posts are on the homepage, and I'm looking for an exert of the post with a link that says "click here to learn more" or something like that. Something like a teaser post to link to the actually long post if that's possible...

    Also that will be more SEO friendly since right now it is duplicate content.

    If you know how I can get this done, please explain in detail. Thank you.

    It should be as simple as going into Wordpress, going to, I think, 'Reading' in the Settings tab on the left side and choosing summary instead of full text from there. That should sort you out :)
