Support » Plugin: Custom More Link Complete » [Plugin: Custom More Link Complete] I get both 'more' links

  • This may be a function of how I’m using WP but I get WP’s More link AND CMLC’s.

    I’m using WP to populate a sidebar that I’ve made on a standard page. I have a test page which displays the post using the_excerpt and get_the_excerpt. Here’s the loop:

    $posts = get_posts('numberposts=10&category_name=News&order=ASC&orderby=post_date');
    foreach ($posts as $post) :
    	echo ("<br />");
    	$body = get_the_excerpt();
    	echo("<br /><span class=\"tiny\">$body</span><br />");

    Both times the post is displayed, I get the “Continue Reading” link from WP and then the one from CMLC (which does go to the URL I want). I’m technically using TwentyEleven but these are not true WP pages. I start each page with

    define('WP_USE_THEMES', false);

    I can’t think of any other info I can add. What is causing the WP link to be there?

    What kind of permalink structure do you use?

    I know it is not meant to work (yet) with standard parameters (=post_id) structure, it might have problems with other kind of permalinks, too.

    At the moment it is set to WP default, under Settings >Permalink Settings. I had something in the Category Base field, but removed it.

    The test page is at if you want to see it.

    EDIT: BTW I do have the last checkbox checked, for using CMLC with excerpts.

    EDIT2: My CMLC permalink setting is for a static link, but you can see that on the page.

    Just to clarify here, it does eliminate the default More link if I actually use the More breaker in the post. But if I use the excerpt functions instead, I get both. So it’s just the excerpt stuff that doesn’t work for me.

    Reading the text on the last checkbox, it sounds like this is normal behavior? It only works on the titles, not on the text itself? That’s what it seems to say, but I guess I didn’t fully understand that. Seems odd to want to have More links in a title in the first place.

    Wrap-up from my end: for me, it works as long as I don’t use excerpts. My final solution was to use the_content or get_the_content with global $more = 0 before I displayed the excerpts, and $more = 1 when I displayed the full posts. So basically I had to work around a lot of stuff that WP wants to do automatically. Again, a self-created problem because I’m not [yet] making it a full WP site.
