Support » Theme: Figero » How to link "read more here" text

  • I’m using Figero and want readers to be able to click on my “Read more here” text to take them to a more detailed description of the section they’re in. The files they’d go to are currently MS Word documents.

    Am I missing being able to do this by copying the word files to “posts” and using the link button or do I need a specific plug-in?

    My web site is http://www.redshieldtech.com and my question pertains to the 4 paragraphs at the bottom with the blue “Read more here” text.

    I also posted this on the general forum.

    Thanks,
    Stacey

  • You can’t use a Word document in a WordPress site – Word uses all kinds of incompatible code – it will cause major problems.

    You CAN copy that text first into a plain text editor or possibly try using “paste from Word” button. But you can’t use formatting from Word.

    Ok. I’ll go through a text editor.

    How do I do the link that allows readers to click “read more here” to take them to that text editor info?

    Let me look at how that theme is set up…

    Look like you’d need to code a link to a page or post where you have that article – i.e.

    <a href="URL TO THE PAGE/POST FOR THE ARTICLE"><span style="font-family:arial;color:#0033FF;">Read more here about maximizing yield. </span></a>
    </p>

    The “Read More” function is more complicated and won’t work in there – http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More

    Thanks. I can link the article to that.

    So, you’re saying I can’t link together a “read more” function with a text editor doc or anything I create unless it has a URL? I can’t link it back to a WP post or page?

    I don’t think you can use WP “read more” function in a text widget.

    You can create a link for “read more” by using what I posted above – put the URL for the post or the page in for “URL TO THE PAGE/POST FOR THE ARTICLE”
