Project Description

Here's the blog: [url removed, login to view]

If I try to share a link on LinkedIn by placing the URL in the status update field, WordPress should automatically generate an excerpt by selecting the first 55 words of the post followed by a linked ellipsis “[...]”. This is not the case anymore. I'm fairly certain this is not an issue with a plugin, but rather how the theme was customized.

Now when I share a link, all I see is the link and a direct URL to the website.

It works fine on Facebook, but not on LinkedIn. Attached are two images: one showing you without the excerpt (no preview) and one showing you with an excerpt (with preview). The goal is to fix our theme so that the excerpts on all of our posts are automatically generated (like the "With Preview" image) when we share it on LinkedIn, and other social networks.
