  • Hello.

    I just wanted to know how to put “read more” when I place a page break in my blog.
    At the index page, “Read more” appears when I do not place an page break,
    but when I do, nothing appears, and I want my readers to know that there are more to read in a single post.

    While I am on the subject,
    is there a way I can set how much words the index page can show?
    I see that there are “excerpt” coded, but I couldn’t figure out how it was determining how many words to show.

    By the way, I really do like the theme.
    Great work.

  • The excerpt is probably declared inside of the functions.php file. There you can determine how many letters to filter through

    Evan,

    Thank you for the advice.
    I am not proficient at reading php, but will try anyway.

    Thanks.

    If your requirement is to have control on Excerpt. let me know i think i can help

    Preethamchandra,

    actually, what I need is to have control over displaying “read more” on page breaks. Having control on excerpt would be my second way of doing things. I would like to know what you can help me with though, so I do have a back up in case nothing else works.

    I haven’t worked with page breaks.

    Here is what you can do.

    Insert <!–nextpage–> to add page breaks

    Mean while you can try this.

    Add below code in functions.php

    This will control the lenght of text on front page posts.

    ——————-
    function my_excerpt_length($length) {
    return 30;
    }
    add_filter(‘excerpt_length’, ‘my_excerpt_length’);

    preethamchandra,

    thank you for the excerpt code.
    I will try it ASAP.

    I have solved the problem, sort of, but not with functions.php.
    My WP is in Japanese, so it has a plugin to fix double bite word codes called “WP Multibyte patch”.
    There are configs in that lets me adjust the excerpt length.

    “Read more” still does not appear when I place page breaks in the posts, but I am satisfied with this setting, so the first problem I have is no longer a problem.

    If the theme creator could help in the page break and “read more” settings, it would be greatly appreciated.
