Change grid layout summary length

Change grid layout summary length

You can choose the length of the summaries that show for items in the grid news layout. The summary will be truncated based on the value of this setting.

Note that summaries in grid layout will always be automatically generated. Grid layout does not support custom post summaries, so even if a custom summary is created for a news post and it shows in the news feed on another page, the summary in the grid layout on the homepage will be an automatically generated excerpt from the post.
