[resolved] Read more link (or [...] ) doesn't seem to work... (3 posts)

    Ok this plugin is nearly perfect... but it seems that my read more links ( or the [...] link which appears by default) - is broken. or rather, it's not a link. well I like that it appears by default - and of course the titles provide a link to the article - but I kinda expect to be able to click on [...] when I'm reading - is this supposed to be a link? or is there a way to say for example morelink="Read More" ?

    apart from that I am loving this plugin! :)

    That's actually a core feature of WordPress, not this plugin. Whenever you call the_excerpt(), it adds that to the end.

    But you can customize it using a core filter, excerpt_more. Try adding this to your theme's functions.php file or a core functionality plugin: https://gist.github.com/3013862
