mPress Custom Front Page
[resolved] Continue reading link (6 posts)

    I just installed mPress Custom Front Page, edited the Appearance/Reading screen and I can't see the Continue reading link at the end of the excerpt. I am really struggling with the excerpt issue. I tried to use another excerpt plugin which didn't work either so I deactivated it before I installed mPress Custom Front Page. Any suggestions?

    The mPress Custom Front Page plugin simply allows you to alter which page shows as your front page. I am a bit confused as to what the issue is with the excerpt. Can you clarify?

    I use "Press This" in wordpress to capture excerpts on say a newspaper article. It creates the post with the excerpt and a link to the full which says "via http://roundhousetalk.com (example only for you) which when clicked on takes the viewer to the full actual article at that newspaper's website. However, before the past few days, when posted to the example (my actual site) http://roundhousetalk.com front page, it shows the featured image, the excerpt with a "Read more" link so you can also go to the actual article URL. The difference is that when a post excerpt is posted to the front page, the "via" link doesn't show up and that's fine. But I need the "Read more" or "Continue to read" link at the end of the excerpt so that user can finish reading the entire article. So, I'm looking to see how to capture the excerpt and include the "Read more" link after the initial 55 words are excerpted. Confusing? Will your plugin do this?

    @jaydokie,

    This forum is for the mPress Custom Front Page plugin, not the mPress Custom Feed Excerpts plugin. I am going to point readers to the appropriate forum thread and mark this as resolved: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/excerpts-continue-reading-missing?replies=4

    Micah, does this create excerpts for front page posts? That's what I am trying to do. I'm not needing a custom feed plugin. I was trying to explain that I already have a feed.

    No this plugin just lets you select a custom post as a front page.
