About

Displays the excerpt of the current post with the "[...]" text at the end, which is not a "read more" link. Used to directly display the excerpt, but it adds opening and closing <p> tags to the string returned by get_the_excerpt().

If you do not provide an explicit excerpt to a post (in the post editor's optional excerpt field), it will display an automatic excerpt which refers to the first 55 words of the post's content. Also in the latter case, HTML tags and graphics are stripped from the excerpt's content. This template tag must be used within The Loop.
