This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Main features of the plugin:

  1. It supports multi-byte language (such as Chinese). It will not produce gibberish as some other excerpt plugins do.
  2. The html tags in the original posts, i.e., the font styles, colors, hyperlinks, pictures and such are preserved in the excerpt.
  3. For better readability, it displays 300 characters for each post on the homepage and 150 characters for each post on archive pages.


  1. Unzip and upload the wp-utf8-excerpt directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

And it’s done!

If it does not work, look in your theme directory, edit the index.php file by changing

    <?php the_content(); ?>


        if (is_single() or is_page()) {
        } else {

注意:有些主题在the_content()中还有一些字,比如the_content(’Continue Reading »’),这种要把整句话换掉。有些主题用了其他文件来控制存档页面,如category.php、archive.php等,如有必要,请对这些文件也做修改。



答:进入后台设置页面(Settings——Excerpt),修改Allow these HTML tags中的内容。

为什么我的RSS Feed不显示全文?

答:本插件没有动RSS Feed,你的Feed不显示全文,应该跟本插件无关。请查看你的后台——设置——阅读——Feed中每篇文章,是不是选成摘要了。




答:后台选项中可以设置“继续阅读”的文本,你可以改成“Read more”或其他任何东西。它的class为read-more,可以用CSS进行美化或隐藏。如果你实在讨厌它,请打开插件文件wp-utf8-excerpt.php,找到165行左右的

    $text .= "<p class='read-more'><a href='".get_permalink()."'>".$read_more_link."</a></p>";
