Is there a way to extract an excerpt from a specific page? I've created a child theme and enabled excerpts on the pages. I know how to extract all excerpts for pages... but is there a way to extract only from a specific page or range of pages?

you need to use get_the_excerpt https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_the_excerpt Where the argument can be the page id or the post object you want to get the excerpt from.

  • ...if, as an example, the page id is 5... how would I change the argument to point to that page?
