Short posts vs. excerpts (5 posts)

    Is there a way to show a difference between a short post and an excerpt of a long post?
    So that the subscribers will not when they need to click the permalink in order to read the full post, and when this is unnecessary.

    If the plugin needs to make an excerpt of your post it adds '[...]' at the end of the text to indicate that it has been truncated.

    Thanks, but the problem is that the "…" does not appear when there is a <!--more--> tag in the post. I would like to show "…" or something similar when there is more to read.

    You could only make this happen if you are using the HTML more tag by editing the code - are you comfortable making code changes? If so then look in the publish function for the area where the more tag is checked.

    You'll see these two lines:

    $excerpt = strip_tags($excerpt);
    $excerpt = trim($excerpt);

    Add this immediately after those two lines:
    $excerpt = $excerpt . "[...]";

    If you are not happy editing code you'll have to find another way to write your blog posts without using the more tag.
