Support » Fixing WordPress » Read More – Automated Teaser Creation

  • Morning..
    I just installed WordPresso n my server and imported all my posts from my Blogger site.

    The import went well, and I also used the plugin to download all the images to my server as well, and that worked fine.

    What didn’t work fine was preservation of the teaser “read More” links. I figured out I can go into the posts, edit them, and use the “insert More Tag” tool, but I wonder if there is a way to automatically do this for existing posts? If not, I guess I can go through all my posts and manually do it. I only have 55 posts, so it wouldn’t take all day.

    Jsut curious if there’s a faster way.

  • Can you point to a post where the “Read more” link doesnt work as expected?

    The site is at

    Any of the posts except the top one will do. I manually inserted the break on the top one. I have been told by some that many themes do auto-teasers, but it does not hold when themes are switched. that said, it may be best for me to just go through and edit the posts by hand.

    Looking at the other posts, it looks liek this is what is being imported from Blogger:

    <a name="more"></a>

    So unless wordpress has a way to look for those across all posts and convert them to the wordpress equivalent for the “read More” link, looks like manual intervention is needed 🙁

    I see NO “Read more” or “Continue reading” links on any of the posts apart from the first one.

    I think that’s what I’m getting at. The code it imported from Blogger didn’t seem to create the Read More links, so I think I’ll just need to edit the <a name="more"></a> that was imported to blogger and manually change it to the wordpress Continue Reading using the GUI
