Don’t Forget <MTEntryExcerpt>!

I keep reading about people needing another field for tags or whatever, because they’re already using the Keywords field (<MTEntryKeywords> tag) for something else. Don’t forget, the Excerpt field (<MTEntryExcerpt> tag) is—or can be—available to use!

If you’re currently using the <MTEntryExcerpt> tag to create excerpts and want that same behavior, try replacing it with <MTEntryBody words="20" convert_breaks="0">.

You might need to use the “Customize the display of this page” tool to make the Excerpt field visible on the Edit Entry page.
