More Tag removes Continue Reading link?

  1. I recently added some More Tags to limit the content that is shown in my blog excerpts. However, after I did this, I noticed that WordPress removed the Continue Reading link in the excerpt view. I tried editing the Text code to fix the position of the <!--more--> but this didn't seem to help. Does anyone know why I am unable to limit the excerpt content with a More Tag and have a Continue Reading link as well?

  2. Please post an active link to the blog in question starting with http:// as it's not the one linked to your username.

    The more tag insertion works only once in a post and that's on the front of the blog. For splitting content beyond that you need to use either next page (pagination) or page jump links. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/

  3. Thank you for your response. I did use the More Tag only once per post and it did appropriately limit the content shown on the main page. However, once I inserted the More Tag, the Continue Reading link was no longer displayed on the main page.

    I have resolved the problem by editing my Screen Options to include the 'Excerpt' box. This allows me to display limited content in the main page as well as keep the Continue Reading link.
