Read more link doesn’t show on short posts

    I’ve used the the_excerpt(); method on my loop to show only an excerpt on my main page. In some cases the read more link doesn’t show. I’m assuming it’s instances where the text in the post is shorter than what excerpt limits it to. It seems it assumes since it’s showing all the text that it doesn’t need the read more link. The problem is there are images in these posts that are not being show, and the read more link is missing to make it obvious there is more to see.

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

    Are you talking about the blog linked to your username or a different WordPress.com blog? I don’t see any “read more” kinds of links there.

    That means you are on the wrong forum. Please ask your question on http://wordpress.org/support. This is WordPress.COM and our answers will not apply to your situation. You should have read the sticky posts on the front page before posting :-)
