This is a bizarre question, I know... but I wanted to know if I could possibly grab the more link (i.e.
the_content('read more');) as a variable to see if it's being applied?
basically I need to put the link in a weird spot that isn't customizable via CSS (which is how I normally do it). Instead of at the end of the post content, I need it to be in the post meta section. Right now, I basically used $strip_teaser to make it invisible at the end of the post, and hard-coded a read more link in the post meta. However, now the link shows up on ALL posts - whether <--more--> is used or not. SO I was wondering if there was a way to grab it as some kind of variable and either echo it out in a new spot, or check to see if <!--more--> was used and if so, have the link display.
I know I could probably do this with a filter, but I was hoping for a cleaner (and faster) method?
