    hey Nick

    does the more tag work in custom post types?, as when i add it to a post, it does not work

    i can't have all the content showing as if there are images in the post they will show too, so i have it set to content limit, then the client wants to insert the more tag where he would like in a post, and the content limit is still there incase he forgets.

    is this possible?

    do i need to add something to my custom post types function?

    i'm using genesis too

    thanks so much for your time

    hey Nick

    ok, as soon as the site is live i can show you, can't put a link on here though till site is approved and live.

    but basically as mentioned above, i am using 'custom post types', and using your awesome plugin to show a list of posts on a page (added a widget area to that page)

    i have the settings in the widget to show posts from my custom post type, show thumbnail, post title and content limit, i'm also using the 'order by numeric value' and 'meta key' of 'value' with custom fields, so the client can do his own sort order.

    the client wants to be able to use the 'more' tag in these posts, but it just does not seem to work, i have the content limit set to 300 characters (as a backup if he forgot to add the more tag)

    hope this helps as that is all i can think of :)

    i will test it out on regular ol' posts when i get a chance, to determine whether it might be custom post types that it is just not working on.

    If the widget is showing on a single page then the <!--more--> tag doesn't work. In the single page content the more tag won't work because it isn't supposed to work there.

    hi Nick, hope you are well

    yes, of cause it does not show on singles pages, i know wordpress very well.

    just leave this thread open for me champ, as soon as the client site is live i will show you the issue, unless i solve it myself, i usually figure things out :)

    thankyou for all your support and this wonderful plugin
