Provides hooks that can be used within ‘The Loop’ to grab content from before and after the tag. If no MORE tag is provided, it will return
the_content() respectively. You can also use a function to access all content, regardless of MORE tag.

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Once that’s done, you can use the following hooks to display the content:
(Please note that these functions operate within ‘The Loop’)
Getting the text before the tag
the_pre_more_text(); – this will display the text automatically.
$content = get_the_pre_more_text(); – this stores the text within a variable.
Getting the text after the tag
the_post_more_text(); – this will display the text automatically.
$content = get_the_post_more_text(); – this stores the text within a variable.
Getting all of the text regardless of tag
all_post_text(); – this will display the text automatically.
$content = get_all_post_text(); – this stores the text within a variable.
- The pre more text is just displaying the excerpt, and the post more has all of the content including the excerpt! *What’s going on?*
If your post does not have a MORE tag used in it, the functions default to the normal WordPress functions; namely the_excerpt() and the_content()
