H2 tag is great for splitting the article into sections, it works good with 1st and 2nd half headers and many more, add h2 tags using same options as h1 but select Heading 2. Below is a sample h2 tag on the front end.

The excerpt character length (number of characters displayed on home page short version of posts)
Sometimes it’s necessary to change the character length of the excerpt. To do that you need to set a custom field called short post chars.
