Editing the "More" command

  1. Sacredpath gave me the following code to edit my "more" command which worked like a charm.

    .more-link {font-size: 0; color: transparent !important;}

    .more-link:after {content: "(Read More...)"; font-size: 13px; color: #3366CC;}

    Now I want to have a better reading experience for users of the blog when it comes to SEARCH RESULTS. Unfortunately, since I have the titles on the pages hidden (so that I can have more control of placement of photos, etc. on page), I invariably had to put the "more" command on the first line (because I did not want the 500px width photos to appear in the search results). However, as a result, i am not able to have an excerpt appear on the search pages.

    As a work around I discovered that I could add text to the more command such as

    <!--more On this page you will find recent photos of events at St. Augustine Parish. On the side column you will find recent news.-->

    Here is how it looks on the search page: http://parishconnections.wordpress.com/?s=news+photos&submit=

    Notice that the whole text is now linked.

    QUESTIONS:

    1. Is there a way I can have the "excerpt/summary" that I created in the "more" command not linked and just have "more" linked? Perhaps, there is another command or code that I can manually place on the pages before the "more" command so that I can have an excerpt before the more link? I don't want this text to actually appear on the pages, only on the search results.

    2. Why is it that the "excerpt/summary" that I attach to the "more" command NOT work when I have the above code that sacredpath gave me in my CSS?

    The blog I need help with is parishconnections.wordpress.com.

  2. oops, my apologies to justpi. It was not sacredpath but justpi who gave me the above code. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/change-more-to-read-more

  3. Is there a way I can have the "excerpt/summary" that I created in the "more" command not linked and just have "more" linked?

    There's not a way to do that with CSS only, and the custom design upgrade offers CSS editing only.

    I don't want this text to actually appear on the pages, only on the search results.

    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand. Could you look at http://parishconnections.wordpress.com/?s=news+photos&submit= and tell me the exact text you want to hide?

    2. Why is it that the "excerpt/summary" that I attach to the "more" command NOT work when I have the above code that sacredpath gave me in my CSS?

    I tested the example CSS you posted above and the "Read More" text was still clickable. Maybe I'm not looking at the right thing?
