Sharepoint online - blog template, how to show post list with only abbreviated content instead of entire post body? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a blog site added to our sharepoint online and a few posts added.  However, as with other blogs I would expect ony the first portion of a post to show up in a list, but its the entire post body that is being displayed.  Is this by design and how to change it?
