Support » Plugin: Custom Post View Generator » Activating & Using Custom Post View Generator Breaks "Read More" functionality

  • After downloading and activating Custom Post View Generator I noticed that the core “read more” behavior of my posts was suddenly not working. Basically large/lengthy posts that contained a “<!–more–>” tag were suddenly displaying the full content of the post on the front page of the website rather than only displaying the “fragment” that I had specified in the post.

    I did some research, and even went so far as to make a few suggested changes to the_loop that people suggested to get the desired behavior, but nothing worked.

    After walking backwards through the steps that I had done recently I realized that I had installed this plugin, so I deactivated the plugin (left it installed), and suddenly the “Read More” functionality started working again.

    I reactivated the plugin (didn’t even bother configuring it) and the “Read More” stuff was broken again.

    I like the plugin, but I don’t like the side effect that it has on the site.

    You can see the problem on the frontpage at

    Looking for a correction. Not sure what the plugin is doing, but it is having a very undesirable effect.

    The problem is that this plugin modifies the the post content and a user adds several fields and complex templates IN SOME TEMPLATES you can see html/css code when wordpress displays the excerpt on post listing.

    So I added in my plugin a function called cpvg_process_excerpt that strips the tags and some content of the post content and displays it as the excerpt and that is that causes to the “Read More” disappear.

    I tested again in the latest version and it didn’t seem to display html/ccs code so I commented the function.

    Update to the latest version but if you are viewing code on the excerpt please uncomment the line 108 on the index.php on the plugin file.
