Support » Plugin: WP FullText Search - The Power of Indexed Search » Results Display “Read More” Link, Heading Link Color

  • Hello, WP FullText Search (WPFTS),

    I am very happy to have found your WordPress plugin because your Smart Excerpts feature displays all hits on a page in context!

    My WordPress theme, Ascend, at Theme Options > Language Settings, Post READ MORE text, enables a custom ‘Read More’ phrase for the search results link to the content page. The WPFT Smart Excerpts overrides that theme setting.

    Is it possible to set WPFTS Smart Excerpts to not override that setting? If not, what Smart Excerpts CSS coding would allow me to specify the link color of the results display heading? The current heading is a link, but it is not apparent because the link is black and is not the color of my theme’s link color.

    Thank you for your assistance,
    Michael McIntosh

    Hi @mtosh

    May you send me a couple of screenshots so I can understand how exactly it looks without WPFTS (correct view) and how it looks with WPFTS (wrong view).

    Where can I get this theme to test, is it paid?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the fast reply, Epsiloncool,

    The theme can be downloaded at-
    https://wordpress.org/themes/ascend/
    –and my version is the free version, and is up to date.

    I apologize, but where can I send the screenshot images?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hi @mtosh

    I have installed the Ascend theme to my dev machine and with WPFTS active it does show Read More links, look

    As I can see on your screenshots, you have redefined Read More text with the custom code or another plugin. Please check it, maybe you can make it better.

    Wow, Epsiloncool, thanks!

    Actually, I used the theme settings (as specified in my initial post above) to modify the ‘Read More’ link text. I changed it to “Read More”, but it did not help–the link still does not appear.

    In case I am unable to get it to work, could you please specify what Smart Excerpts CSS coding would allow me to specify the link color of the results display heading?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hi @mtosh

    I am tried to change the settings which you described, but I still can see modified text with WPFTS on.

    Not understand what happen on your side. The code is pretty straightforward and it should show this link (and it’s not WPFTS area at all).

    Well, to change the header color of the search result item you can add a new rule

    .search-archive .search_results_item h5 {
    color: ….
    }

    That worked for me! Thanks so much for the assistance, Epsiloncool!

    If in the future I find the cause for the “Read More” error and this support string is still open, I will post the solution.

    With appreciation,
    Michael

    Hi @mtosh

    Since I can’t repeat the issue on my machine, it’s still possible to solve it directly on yours. Do you have a Teamviewer access for me or FTP? I am interested in solving this too.

    Hi, Epsiloncool,

    I apologize for the delay. Thanks much for your willingness to assist!

    I sent you an e-mail.

    Hi, Epsiloncool,

    I just noticed that the Read More link is now working. Was that you or is it due to me uninstalling and re-installing WPFTS earlier today?

    Hi @mtosh

    I am testing something right now.

    Hi, @mtosh

    I have developed a small Addon plugin that fixed the Read More issue and additionally unpacking shortcodes.

    Please let me know if it helps.

    Epsiloncool, thanks much!

    This is a small thing, but I noticed that when the addon is activated, search result excerpts will not display certain characters (ex.: double quotation marks) and instead display HTML Entity numbers (ex.: “).

    Regards,
    Michael
