Support » Installing WordPress » Less is More: post continued elsewhere

  • petersig


    Now that I have my theme up and running here, thanks to the forums, two new questions arise.

    I tend to write long posts. I would like to abbreviate them on the front page, and send the reader who is interested to a new one. I note that in the regular tags I use for writing and editing, there is a “more” tag. Would entering it do the trick? What is the name of the continuation page in my files? Is there a plugin that does this better than, or instead of, “more?”

    If you insert the “more” tag the text will break at that point and clicking on “more” will take the reader to the single post view (usually the single.php – if exist.)
    You don’t really have to do anything special with that tag – just insert it, and WP will do the rest.



    Thanks. I had made so many changes so fast that I got into being afraid to try any more, once the big things were done. So now that I know that’s what more does, I’ll use it right away.
