Clicking Read More will take the reader to the full post. How do I accomplish this? April 5, 2006 at 6:20 pm #9118 drmikeMember Use the more tag from within your editor. What’s displayed before the tag will be displayed on the main page. When the visitor clicks through, then they’ll get the entire post. Note that some of the themes automaticaly do their own version of the more tag when they put the first 200 characters on the main page. Hope this helps, -drmike Author Posts The topic ‘Showing only part of a post’ is closed to new replies.
