Support » Plugin: Postie » Read More Tag
2 years, 3 months ago
Struggling to find solution how to add “read more” tag or break text after certain numbers of characters or words.
Any assistance on that is welcome.
If you’re using plain text then you can just insert the <!--more--> in your email.
If you’re using html then it is harder as the email clients add lots of markup.
You can use http://postieplugin.com/downloads/postie-shortcodes-addon/
Or you can roll your own using the hooks/filters. See https://postieplugin.com/extending/
Hi Wayne, thanks for your reply.
Is there a way to use hook/filter in my theme functions.php which will automatically break the text after 50 words?
Could you please help me on this one?
Postie doesn’t have anything to do with your theme.
