How to add "continue reading.." link to my posts?
I am trying to shorten the length of my posts on my home screen and have a “continue reading” button after the first of second paragraph. Anyone know how to accomplish this? Thanks!!
The blog I need help with is millennialoutofdebt.com.
The Reading Settings page summary setting changes the RSS feed display only and does not impact the posts on the site.
*Replace NAME_OF_BLOG withe the actual name of your blog in that URL.
If you want to display only post excerpts on the front page or the blogs page of the blog followed by read more links, you can insert “the more tag” into each post prior to publication.
The read more tag can be inserted once only into any post to change the front page or main page for posts display from full post to an excerpt. The split in the text does not display to you in preview mode but it will be there after the post is published.
Please Read Go Back and Edit Posts https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/#go-back-and-edit-posts and be sure to click Update to publish the after your editing.
Alternatively, you can switch to using a theme that automatically displays front page excerpts. This is an out of date list of only SOME active themes on WordPress.com that use the excerpt instead of full post content. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/theme-with-automatic-excerpts?replies=13#post-1396410

This showcase filter lists all themes that display excerpts by default:
Most newer themes also have the Content Options panel in the Customizer, which allows you to choose between displaying the full post or an excerpt.
