Show More for P2

Description

Automatically turn all posts into excerpts of 300 characters and add a “Show More” link that will load directly in the page. If your post includes a picture, it will also obtain a thumbnail and place that at the beginning of the excerpt. Supports Infinite Scroll, too (assuming you manually enabled it on your P2 site)!

  • Shorter posts will be left alone, unless they have a picture
  • Posts with a picture will always be turned into a thumbnail/excerpt
  • Expanding or contracting a post will scroll to the top of the post

Planned:

  • Long posts with embedded video and no image include the video in the excerpt
  • Change the character length from the admin screen
