Customizr
[resolved] Use of excerpt or snippets (6 posts)

    Hi,
    I am trying to get excerpts running on wordpress, with te Customizr theme. I have been searching for a long time and found some useful tips. However, when I try changing codes, I do not get the result I want.

    I either get just a text or nothing at all.

    If you could be so kind to take look at http://www.smxpics.be/V2 . The post titled ‘Nog nen test’ is looking like I want it. I have made a post and added some text in the summary part. Then I added a link to the full post, with the text 'Lees Meer ....' (read more ....). I would like this to appear automatically (not manually adding the link to the full post) when using the excerpt (summary) field of a post.

    If you would like to know what the content of the site will be, please visit http://www.smxpics.be
    This is the version of the site we have running at this time. Our goal is to replace this with the ‘V2′ one.

    Thanks in advance for your advice and tips.
    Kind regards,
    Kenny.

    Have you gone to Customiz'it > Pages and posts layout > Select the length of posts in lists (home, search, archives, ...) and selected "Display the excerpt"?

    Hi ElectricFeet,
    I did that already, but that just gives me […] and not an actual link to the full post like a "read more..."

    The link is the title. I too would prefer "read more", but it's pretty much a convention now to do it this way.

    One day if I have some more spare time, I'll post a snippet, but don't hold your breath...

    Here's an old post. Not tested if it still works or not.
