[resolved] excerpts - "more" tag appears blank (5 posts)

    Hi there, using WP 1.5. have changed index.php to show excerpts instead of content. It displays the excerpts correctly, but at the end of the excerpt, there's no "MORE" tag... instead a blank tag that looks like: [...]
    (no link, no "more" tag text, nada.)

    have been searching the forums for quite a while - would appreciate any clues!

    This article, Customizing the Read More, may or may not answer your question, but it does have links to discussions about the_content and the_excerpt tags.

    You might want to post a link so the problem can be seen...

    thanks so much for the link - I have seen that article and others, still not resolving my issue.
    Unfortunately this is an internal company blog so I can't link it for you.

    Try this plugin (excerpt reloaded)
    http://guff.szub.net/the-excerpt-reloaded

    Edit. What you've got is the default behaviour of WP - the excerpt strips all the html markup.

    thanks. using the the-excerpt-reloaded plugin was a good solution for our issues.
