Hi so my site is located here
I am using the theme "Boldly" and here is what I am trying to do
As you can see the 3 "Feature boxes" . I only want a portion of the post or my excerpt to go there, instead the full post shows there.
I know that I can vary between showing the content and the post in index.php
by <php the excerpt> or <php the content>
Now this theme doesn’t use posts but pages.
So what you see on the front text boxes is actual page content.
I would like to only show a small portion of it and then the full version when people click through the "Read more" link.
I tried implementing the "Read more" tag but I believe that only works for posts.
Wondering what I can do to only show a fixed length of words instead of the entire page content.
What I did do is create a separate page for the actual full content and then a page fofr the front page text boxes which is what you see. I can name them both the same as long as they have different page id’s.
But I want to know how to use the conventional way of cutting my front page content into a smaller excerpt type of paragraph or line with a read more link.
My second question is, I want to have the ability to control what language my dashboard is in(So I downloaded Native Dashboard, a language translation plug in". I also installed a classified ads plug in called AWPCP-Another WordPress Classified Plug in and want the front end to be in Spanish.
I downloaded the es_ES.mp and es_ES.po files and uploaded them to the languages sub folder in wp-content but when I switch my Dashboard to Spanish
I get this error message

Here are some suggestions:
Reload this web page later.
HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfil the request.
Now on the AWPCP site, it says to do this to translated the plug in’s front end to another language
