Test Post

The choice of whether to display a full post or an excerpt can then be based on factors such as the template used, the type of page, the category of the post, etcetera. In other words, with a quicktag the post author decides what happens, whereas the template writer is in control with excerpts. Moreover, although can be used to create a real split using the $stripteaser parameter, it would be hard and complicated to then differentiate based on characteristics, causing this to become a basically site-wide choice.
