I’m noticing a discrepancy between what the codex states regarding the default display of the
<!--more--> tag and what I’m seeing my WordPress install (v3.01) display. According to the codex, the default is supposed to be a ‘more…’ link immediately following the end of the truncated content. What actually displays is ‘(more…)’. If I specify custom text for the more link in
the_content(), the custom text is also bookended by parentheses. None of the articles regarding customized formatting of the more link mention anything about these parentheses or how to remove them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
