'Read More' not working on modified Kubrick (read the codex)
I did not create this site, just being asked to maintain it. The client emailed to say “Hey, the “read more” text isn’t showing up anymore and all it has is
I’m not at all familiar with Kubrick (or this site), and I’m assuming that is what this theme is built from as I noticed reference to it in the code.
Ok – the posts are showing on the ‘front’ page, as set in “Settings –> Reading Settings”.
I went in and looked and they were (are?) using a plugin called “Content and Excerpt Word Limit”. I looked at its settings which say:
Instead of the_excerpt() or the_content(), use
<? php excerpt('word-limit'); ?>or
<? php content('word-limit'); ?>within your loop to limit the words for each.
<? php excerpt('25'); ?>.
I then went and looked at the index.php and home.php and couldn’t find reference to this. Tried to make the substitution, still nothing.
Next, I deactivated the plugin, and a few others, tried to reactive them one by one. Nothing.
I then opened the posts to see if they were actually using any kind of short code
[...], or the
<!--more-->and there were no references to anything to truncate the post within the post itself.
Then I even switched to the ‘default’ (blue header) theme and the 2010 theme and still no ‘read more’ text (in both those themes I get ‘ … ‘ at the end of the cut off post). Still nothing.
In all this I noticed that the ‘functions.php’ file was named ‘functionsX.php’. Hmmm, might not be related but thought it was odd.
Next, I started looking at the home.php and index.php – and digging in the codex and the forum, and tried a few tips I found on forum posts that didn’t work.
Anyone have any clues?
