    Your theme is likely creating 'excerpts' by default at publish...
    Using the post editor make sure all screen options appear, and look for the excert or other custom fields related to excerpts and remove the excerpt or custom fields - then publish post(s).

    I just removed the excerpt field any fields and just added the 'more' and published it, and it still wont appear :(

    look into the front page template (index.php) of your theme, and replace the_excerpt(); with the_content();

    Hi alchymyth I looked in the index.php of my theme and dont see anything to do with the_excerpt();

    I also looked in page template page.php and it isnt there either...

    I am using a custom WP theme and am trying to make "read more" work on my homepage of my blog.

    I am using pages and static homepage,,,

    Thanks for any help you can offer...
