Support » Themes and Templates » Read more not working

  • Hi I am a total newbie to word press, and am amazed at the power it has for a cms.

    I am having a problem with the read more as I would like to use it on each page not just the homepage.

    I have read the codex and have found this:

    How to use Read More in Pages
    Please remember that the “Read More” tag is used only on the Home page which shows the latest posts. It does not work in “Pages”. If you want to turn it on in Pages too for showing a set of partial posts, use the following code inside the loop for the dynamic content:

    global $more;
    $more = 0;

    So I think I am close but I have no idea which file of the template to put it in. I am using Twenty TEN as didn’t want to stray too far on my first attempt. I have no idea where “loop for the dynamic content” is which file name to edit in the wp-content/themes/twentyten.

    Any help you can provide will be appreciated. Thank you.

  • you can Evermore plugin to add readmore option on all posts

    I have tried many of these plugins and don’t seem to be alble to get them going. I install them and activate them. Then I have no idea how to make them work as I thought I would just add the more to the article and it would work, but not for me.

    Even if I could figure out how the code to make a new page template and call it from WP so when I want the more on a page I would pick that template which would include the content and the right column as the site is at

    Any help would be appreciated as I have tried editing so many pages.
