  • Hey basically, I would like to find a way of having the really long posts, that could maybe take up the full homepage only be a few lines long with the first bit of the post in and then a read more link… Example

    thisisareallylongpost (that would be the full post)

    thisis…

      read more

    (would link to the posts full address)

    Thankyou for your help

    What do you mean? What did you edit? The <!–more–> should be automatic unless interfered with by a plugin or some function in a theme. You shouldn’t have to edit the theme just to make it work.

    Do you mean that you edited the_content() to get a customized link? If so, post your edit.

    Does the more tag work with the Default theme?

    And what do you mean by ‘the index.php in the file’?
