    Any chance to have the ‘Read More’ tag to be checked as well?
    my writers are not used to that and it’s hard to then to comply with the template need for the ‘<!–more–>’ inside the first few lines. Then, my theme got messed up and I have to go back on each one ad fix it.
    Would be great if the plugin could check for that too.
    Thank you

    ehm01,

    As I understand it, the Read More tag can be replaced by the use of excerpts. This plugin already supports excerpt requirements. Perhaps you could modify your theme to use automatic excerpts, based on a specific content length.

    I’m looking to keep this plugin as lean as possible, with only the core requirements that 90% of sites might use. For anything else, I’m considering developing some paid add-ons that add extra functionality. I will add your request to my list of possible add-ons.

    Dauidus, thank you for the quick response. Appreciate that.
    I’m using WP Twenty Fifteen theme and to be honest, I have no idea how to change it to use automatic excerpts, based on a specific content length.
    From what I read, that will be great since I could have excerpt and the ‘read more’ all in one.
    But my programming skills are way below that level.
    I research the web looking for ‘automatic excerpts’ but tons of info come in and I’m not sure I can follow that.
    As far as I know, Twenty Fifteen does not respect excerpts on the first page, this is why it lists all recent posts in total.
    What I’m trying to accomplish is continue using Twenty Fifteen but having only few lines for each post on the front page.
    I have writers who are doing the texts for me and I would like to have then filling the post the way I only have to read it and post it.

    I will look further about excerpts and if you have a good tutorial you can send me to, appreciate as well.

    Thank you

    ehm01,

    Sounds like you’re looking for one of these (both are simple changes to theme code):
    http://www.findurlaptop.com/tech/2014/12/26/post-excerpt-in-twenty-fifteen-wordpress-theme/
    http://johngirdwood.com/2014/12/27/show-excerpt-snippets-on-blog-for-wordpress-twenty-fifteen-theme/

    So, as long as your content writers use the excerpt area, you should be good to go. You’ll need to go back and fix each past post individually, unless you wanna deal with code/database tables.

    As this issue doesn’t really pertain to my plugin, I’m marking as resolved.

    -D
