How to keep 'More' text/link inline with content? (2 posts)

    Thank you for this plugin. It is the only one that seems to work without adding anything to 'The Loop' - and I can't get those that require that modification to work anyway. My main issue is that I would like the link to remain inline with my page content and not drop down to the next line (actually, I think it skips two). Put another way, when I click the link, I would like my page text at the 'More tag' position to continue on the same line after the link disappears. It would look much cleaner that way. Not a deal breaker, as I finally have something that at least works, but it would be much nicer. I have tried to make this work the way I want by using the custom CSS option to no avail. I tried the 'inline' option for display, thinking that would do the trick. I have tried options associated with clear and float with no luck. The result is always that the link appears below the 'more tag' point. Is there a way to "fix" this? I realize that it may not be a bug but a feature, but maybe there is way to make it an option as either inline OR line break in settings. Also, I notice that when selecting the 'show less' option, that it doesn't show up right away. I have to scroll all the way down to the end of the page to find a '(more)' link. Not sure where that is derived from as I left the 'more text' option to the default of 'click here to continue reading'. If I click '(more)', the extra text that was revealed by clicking the 'click here to continue reading' link goes away and I am now back to the top with the excerpt, but the link now shows as (less). That functionality seems not correct and backwards by term ('less' = 'more' & vice versa). Clicking on that will expand the page text back out as if I had clicked the original show more link. Sorry this is so long, but I know very little about CSS, web page programming, and WordPress in general, but I am learning, and wanted to make sure you understood the issues. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Oh, so you know, I am using the 2010 theme, but that doesn't seem to be related to the issues. Thank you, Don C.
