Support » Theme: Ephemeris » the function “read more” does not work (WP5.3)

  • Resolved ericmw


    I tried to use the read-more tag on my welcome-page (WP 5.3). The tag is – after the change to Gutenberg – hard to find either in the classic-toolbox or in the new one hidden somewhere. I placed it in a separate box but after saving the changes, I only could see the code when I swapped to the html-view but nothing happend.
    Do you have any ideas what went wrong?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    If you’re using Gutenberg, you can find the More tag with all the Layout Element blocks, in the Block Inserter. See here –

    If you’re using the Classic Block within Gutenberg, you’ll find the ‘More tag’ is the 3rd last icon in the top row of the Classic Block toolbar icons.

    If you’re using the Classic Editor (i.e. the Visual Editor that was in WP prior to v5.0), you’ll find the ‘More Tag’ in the top row of toolbar icons –

    As for my Ephemeris theme and WordPress 5.3, the More tag works fine. If you have a look at this sample blog on my theme demo site, you’ll see the More tag in use. The first blog post (Catching Big Air) is using the Classic Editor with a more tag, the second Post (The Great Outdoors) is using a More tag in a Classic Block within Gutenberg, and the third Post (The Light in the Dark) is using a More block within Gutenberg.

    Lastly, in case you’re not aware, the More tag will only work in Posts, not Pages.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you Anthony for your answer,
    well, I have found the tags before you mentioned but I thought it would be a bit strange, having the possibility to use the tag only in posts. I wondered wether there was a way to use it in pages as well. So I will have to choose a plugin instead for this task because in fact my intro-text is not very long when you look at it on a desktop-screen, but it is too much for the screen of the cellphone.
    Anyway, thank you again, for me this topic has been resolved.
