Currently it is not possible. What you could do is create your own link. If you are using it in a sidebar you might use the Text widget.
Linking the author name is also not possible.
You are not the first person to ask for this feature and I may add it in the future.
Can you tell me how you would want it to work?
For example: Just having an input field on the Add/Edit testimonial screen that allows you to enter a URL for the read me link. Then, if you have the characters limited, it will show the link if one has been entered?
Thank you ever so much for responding and my apologies for not replying sooner.
Ah, that is a shame! In a future update that would be wonderful!
For the ‘red more’ option, something like this:
A checkbox labelled ‘add read more link to end of excerpt’.
And after that, an input field labelled ‘custom “read more” text’, so that people can create their own (such as ‘…’ or ‘[..]’, etc.).
Thank you ever so much. I shall wait for an update, it isn’t required just yet and the plugin has so many other features.
You understand I’m not a programmer.. and I’m fully aware that these will be wiped when updating, but I found these few lines, and simply inserted a few changes. I have no idea how to create a function that would alter them instead as then the changes would carry across on updating.
// HMS Testimonials admin.php changed line 3456 to $exp[ $word_limit – 1 ] = ‘ …’;
// HMS Testimonials admin.php changed line 3463 to $testimonial[‘testimonial’] = substr($testimonial[‘testimonial’], 0, $char_limit).’ …‘;
