Link [...] to full text or testimonial page? (7 posts)

    Is there a way to link the ellipsis in the sidebar widget for an excerpted testimonial to the permalink? Or make it an actual "Read more..." link?

    I tried adding this:

    <p class="read-more"><a href="{{ permalink }}">Read more...</a></p>

    But it just links to the main blog page, not the testimonial, even though the URL is outputs is something like: /wordpress/testimonial/stephen-n/

    Odd.

    Have you tried updating your permalinks at all?

    I've tried all sorts of permalink settings, but the testimonials page just still links to the blog — even with default permalink settings, which are not desirable anyway.

    I typically use: /%category%/%postname%/

    Any other suggestions?

    Odd too is that were there used to just be an ellipsis there's now a "Continue Reading ->" link. Is there a setting to just turn that off, and let me just use a manual "Read more" link to the testimonials page instead?

    It's really not necessary to link to individual testimonials, as they are all pretty short, so the listing is fine.

    have you resolved this yet? If not use the TB icon in your admin bar to send me an email and I'll help you sort it out.

    I've ended up setting the read more link to display:none as I couldn't ever get it to work.

    I don't see a TB icon in the admin bar. Not sure what you're referring to there.

    if you're using version 1.6.2 it will add a TB icon to the right of your site name in your admin bar when you're logged in. Unless you've chosen to disable that. Either way you have my email address now from the other thread :)
