Support » Fixing WordPress » Activate “more” capability

  • Hi
    I’d like to activate the normal “more” capability in a wp installation I’m setting up.
    Thing is, in the theme I use (Remix), only the posts’ title show up in the blog page, while I need also an excerpt from (eg the first part of) each post to appear.
    I guess there’s a code line to be inserted in the template. Hope its that simple. Still, I need to know exactly how to do it.
    Thanks a lot for any tips,

    PS I’ve searched the codex and found a bit about using the more tag, but I guess I’m too much of a newbee to understand it very well.
    Also: I have found a More tag in the index.php file, and this should make it work – I’d believe. In the templates’ files I have not found it.

  • Contact the theme author or re-write the index.php of that theme.

    Had tried that before posting, without getting enough details.
    But – the solution lies within the index.php, and not in some template file or the like – right?
    (If so, maye I can figure it out using the info on the codex page. Just need to know where to search.)

    Even better:
    The index.php contains this line:
    <?php the_content(‘Read more…’); ?>
    Is this the part to modify?

    You don’t need to modify anything. Just click the “more” button when writing the post – it will insert the break where your cursor is.

    You need to know more about The_Loop because by briefly looking at your site that index must have more than one Loop in it.

    Quite right
    I had to get the Loop into the template.
    This pulls the posts’ content into the page, but only (of course) the part above the –more–
    Just as you said.
    So – thanks

    PS – no double Loop found in any template, moshu. Forget looking after it now; I’ve changed a lot on the site
