Custom More Link Complete

Customize your `<!-- more -->` read more link, remove anchor, customize CSS class, add title to the link, add markup or nofollow...

Update 14 February 2012

I've released version 1.4.1 which introduces a completely new way to attach the scripts to the WordPress actions. As I could test and from the first feedback, the compatibility is much higher that previous method inherited from other plugins. Enjoy Custom More Link Complete!

Update February 2012

Considering the received feedback, now you cand also customize the "Continue reading" link and "[...]" text on excerpts (for instance you see them on category pages in TwentyTen/TwentyEleven themes). On the configuration page you MUST first activate the removal of the default filters from TwentyTen, TwentyEleven. Otherwise, the TT, TE filters will conflict with CMLC and your links will not work.

Updated on January 2012: I made a change in the regex according to Gerobe's feedback. Thanks!

CMLC (Custom More Link Complete) combines the power and flexibility of 2 of the best plugins existing for this purpose, with some personal bug fixes and improvements.

In the custom link structure you an use the following tags:

  1. %permalink% - the permalink provided by WordPress
  2. %anchor% - the anchortext provided by WordPress (default '#more-number')
  3. %class% - the CSS class provided by WordPress (default 'more-link')
  4. %linktext% - the linktext as delivered by WordPress
  5. %title% - the article title (customizable)


You will find in the languages folder the English localization files (.po and .mo), the German translation files (dl_custom_more_link_complete-de_DE.po, dl_custom_more_link_complete-de_DE.mo) and the Romanian translation files (dl_custom_more_link_complete-ro_RO.po, dl_custom_more_link_complete-ro_RO.mo). Using Poedit you can easily create more translations if you open the .po file. If you have more translations to include in the following releases, please send them on my email: florin@drumliber.ro Thanks!

Thanks to

Although it was completely rewritten and has new features, originally the plugin was based on the plugin Custom More Link by Michael Weingaertner (http://cywhale.de) and has elements of More Link Modifier by Peggy Kuo (http://psychopyko.com). Thanks to Gerobe for all the feedback he provided. I thank to J. Hammock & Associates, LLC (http://hammock.net) for the donation they made, it was a pleasant reminder to keep updating and testing this great plugin.
