located in the / file. Uses the global array .

This function adds support of certain features for a given post type(s). This means that a given area (or areas) of the edit screen will be available.
It is recommended that it is attached to the init action hook.


<?php add_post_type_support( $post_type, $feature ) ?>


<?php add_post_type_support( $post_type, $feature ) ?>


Adding excerpts to Pages

You could cut & paste the following code into the functions.php file of your theme, or add it in a plugin form, to allow excerpts for Pages.

<?php add_action( 'init', 'add_excerpt_to_page_post_type' );
function add_excerpt_to_page_post_type(){
  add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );
}; ?>


(string) (required) Post type. (max. 20 characters).
Default: None
(single string or array) (required) The post type feature to add.
Default: None

  • title
  • editor (content)
  • author
  • thumbnail (featured image) (current theme must also support post-thumbnails)
  • excerpt
  • trackbacks
  • custom-fields
  • comments (also will see comment count balloon on edit screen)
  • revisions (will store revisions)
  • page-attributes (template and menu order) (hierarchical must be true)


 * Register support of certain features for a post type.
 * All features are directly associated with a functional area of the edit screen, such as the
 * editor or a meta box: 'title', 'editor', 'comments', 'revisions', 'trackbacks', 'author',
 * 'excerpt', 'page-attributes', 'thumbnail', and 'custom-fields'.
 * Additionally, the 'revisions' feature dictates whether the post type will store revisions,
 * and the 'comments' feature dicates whether the comments count will show on the edit screen.
 * @since 3.0.0
 * @param string $post_type The post type for which to add the feature
 * @param string|array $feature the feature being added, can be an array of feature strings or a single string
