[resolved] CHILD PAGES of the current page in POST format + LIMIT each (6 posts)

    Hi :)

    I have some empty parent pages. Each parent page has child pages. When I click on parent page I see all child pages in post format. To do so, I used this code.

    All I need now is to limit each child page (in post format) with "read more" link. Are there any solutions?

    I tried "WP Limit Posts Automatically" plugin, but it acts only on posts, not pages.

    Please help :)

    Thank you for your reply.
    Yes, I know it works on pages. But it's not exactly what I asked about.

    I need child pages which are appeared (in post format) from parent page to be automatically limited with "read more" link!

    Another way is to put back the page excerpt functionality. This way you can control exactly what text to display...

    1. Make your parent page template with that 'get pages in post format' code

    2. Change every occurrence of 'content' to 'excerpt'

    3. Install a page excerpt plugin, to add excerpts to pages. I'm using Andrew Ozz's to edit all excerpts in one handy place.

    the only thing i cant figure out, is how to get the thumbnails in there. Anyone know if theres a special way to display page thumbs as opposed to post thumbs?
