Hello, I would like to display a part of a post and then if it’s too big to has a read more link. I know I am suppose to use the_content for this. But it just keeps displaying the whole story. Even if the post is pretty big. Also I never filled out “excerpt” part when I add a post, but I think I read that WP automatically desides if the post is too long.
How can I do this. I have the code
<?php the_content(‘Read the rest of this entry Â»’ ); ?>
in the loop. I’ve tried everything, putting more parameters in, and putting the link to the permaling for last param, but nothing it always displays the whole story.
What am I doing wrong. Is there something somewhere in options that I need to check.
