    Hi there

    I am using the template Streamline 1.1.3 by 9th sphere
    Plugins i am using:
    Customize Meta Widget Version 0.2 | By Jehy | Visit plugin site
    Hide Categories Version 1.0.0 | By Eduardo Chiaro |
    Newsletter Version 1.2.0 | By Satollo |
    WP-ContactForm Version 1.5.1.1 | By Ryan Duff, Peter Westwood |

    For some reason my readmore link does not work on the live site
    I am using the readmore in pages not posts
    Can anyone help me out with this or send me a post link?
    I haven't found a post to solve this problem.

    thanks for the help in advance

    The more tag doesn't normally work on Pages. You need to edit page.php and just after <?php get_header(); ?>, add global $more;. Then, further down, immediately before the_content(), add $more = 0;.

    Hi Esmi

    I did as you proposed, and now the more button shows up, though
    when I click on it, it doesn't link to anywhere, it just stays on the same page.
    do I have to enter something into the $more = 0; like
    $more = id10;

    What do you propose?

    Great site you got by the way

    No - it should be $more = 0;.

    Can you post a link to your site?

    Hi,

    The read more link appears, but the href of that link is "more-2", witch does not link anywhere... please help.

    WP 2.9.1

    This is my code

    <?php global $more; $more = false; ?>
    <div id="content">
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="feature">
    <h2>ID); ?>" ><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <?php $more = 0; ?>
    <?php the_content('Read More'); ?>
    <?php $more = true; ?>

    </div>
    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

    I just had a similar problem & tracked it to the way I had configured my permalinks (wrongly). Double check the syntax of the permalinks -especially those pesky underscores. :-)

    Great point ChristineEvron,but I still haven't solved this though.
    What I did was just add it the normal way eg.<p style="text-align: right;"><a href="http://roelcor.co.za/?p=455 " target="_self"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Read more</span></a></p>
    As you can see @ site
    Seems simple enough to do it this way for me now :)

    I am busy looking into this problem again for I experienced it with another template namely:camoword 1.0 by Lunarfruit and you can see the problem at
    site you will see the read more bottom right.

    Previously I thought, great!, I'll just solve it in the way I posted above, but now I need to build the site to be user friendly for the client and doing as I posted above is a bit complex for the client.

    How Esmi explained it, it works but the link just goes nowhere,
    it just stays on the same page, strange that certain templates give this problem and others not.
