another newbie question, sorry, but one i can't seem to figure out or find the answer to...
i'd like index.php to display only titles or excerpts, and then have a 'read more' link display the full post.
if i alter
- the_content(_('Read more')); to
- the_excerpt(_('Read more'));
i get [...] at the end the end of the excerpt, and clicking on the title brings up the post in the same format - excerpted. and with no 'read more' link.
can anyone explain this concept to me, or if it's even doable? will i need to create a 'display post' subpage?
thanks for your help.
