[resolved] More Tag not working (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I love this theme, it's got a really clean look to it, but for some reason, the More Tags are not working for my blog posts. All I see in my post is three dots like this "...". The words "Read More" do not appear, and there's no link to click to read the rest of the post. Is this a known issue you are working on, or am I doing soemthing wrong?

    You can see my site here:

    The problem post is the first one which appears titled "From Supervisor Foust: Rapid Flash Beacon Installed Next Week at McLean High School Westmoreland Crosswalk".

    [No bumping, thank you.]

    OK, I switched to the WordPress Twenty Twelve theme and the More Tags work perfectly, so something is defenitely broken with them in Pinboard. Any suggestions on things to try?

    How are you setting the three dots to "Read More"?
    The three dots don't link in the theme's demo website too, so it looks like it was built that way. You can click on your posts title instead.

    Hi Andrew,

    I'm not setting the three dots, the theme is doing that. That's not the way the More tag is designed to work. I know I can click on the Posts title to see the full post, but readers unfamiliar with doing so might not realize they can. I think this is a bug in the theme's code, but we'd need the theme author or someone way more proficient with CSS and PHP than me to figure out why it's not working.
