  • Hi guys,

    Could someone please help me out. I am looking to move my “Read More” box from its current location to between the post exert and the share icons.

    Here is the link to my site: My Website

    If you could let me know what I need to do to achieve this I would be really grateful.

    Go to index.php and find following.

    $src .= get_the_excerpt();

    it is your excerpt, move the code for Read More button right below above line and check.

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply.

    I don’t see $src .= get_the_excerpt(); in my index.php?


    Hi Matthew,

    If that is not the case check for following

    1. If your Reading Settings (under admin Settings > Reading which option is selected for “Front Page Displays” if that is “Your Latest Posts” then check for $src .= get_the_content() rather than $src .= get_the_excerpt().

    If you dont get it either.

    2. Your home page blog displaying page is not index, so check for loop.php or such file which might be indicated in index file. this may change theme to theme.

    Thanks, all sorted. However I had to remove the social share icons from the excerpt on both home page and archive post pages as it wouldn’t work correctly with the ‘read more’ being in that spot. It kept dropping down.

    Would you have a plugin to recommend to add social share to the home page?

    I mostly use Sharebar or digg digg for social share icons
