Support » Themes and Templates » intro is skipped when reading article

  • Hello,

    i use the (more) tag to display a read more link on my website so that my articles are not displayed completely on the frontpage.

    But the problem is that when somone clicks on readmore to read the complete article,
    wordpress will skip the intro that is displayed on the first page. I think it uses an anchor to skip the intro because most people will read the intro on the frontpage. But i think it is annoying and i would like to remove it. How could i remove this option?

    best regards,

    Christian.

  • have you tried using the excerpt field in the post editing form?

    this does the same as the ‘more’ tag, but does not put in an anchor, nor link to the anchor.

    no there is no such field in my wordpress write menu. But maybe that is because i translated my theme into another language? anyway i have never seen any field which i could use as an intro the an article. (so that you will only get a teaser on the frontpage)

    how can i activate this? are there other solutions? because another problem i have is that the wysiwyg plugin does not work in firefox or safari on my mac. And the plugin that does works, does not have an icon to insert a more tag (to include a teaser)

    so i need a good solution that works browser independent to create a teaser that does not link to an anchor

    change the_content() to the_excerpt() in your file. You can read up on both in the codex.

    where can i find this information?

    More info in the Codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags

    However, if you don’t even see the excerpt field box when writing a post, odds are you are using the Simple Controls setting. From your admin screen, click “Options”, then “Writing” and select “Advanced Controls” from the first set of radio buttons. Scroll down and click “Update Options”. Now when you go to Write Post, you’ll have an excerpt field you can fill in.

    thanks a lot!

    oke and i am trying to find in the css code where i can align the:

    Geplaatst in Games | Wijzig | 3 Reacties ร‚ยป

    to the left of the page instead of the center
    where could i change this?

    Well, looking at your source shows a class of postmetadata, so one might conclude this to be the appropriate place in the css:

    .narrowcolumn .postmetadata {
    text-align: center;
    }

    if you want to customize the “<– more –>” and its behaviour (jumping to anchors or not and thus skipping the intro) you might be interested in the following article:

    that’s the freakin shit!
    i changed it now

    many thanks to all of you!
