Support » Plugin: News & Blog Designer Pack - WordPress Blog Plugin » The Read More button does not show the full blog post

    When I click on any blog link or click on the “Read More” button, it does not show the full blog post, it only shows the featured image.

    I have tried both the post list and post ticker shortcodes.

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

    I found another support thread similar to mine where CSS code was added, but it did not help me. This is the CSS code I added:

    .site-main article {
    display: inline-block;
    }

    Also, is there a way to edit the shortcode on all blog posts at once if I decide to change the blog layout? It is a pain to edit every post individually!!

    Thanks.

    Still the same issue, but I discovered that when clicking on “read more”, the result is 1) the featured image is at the top
    2) followed by the grid list summary of ALL the blog posts
    3) followed by the full content (after a lot of scrolling) for the post for which “read more” was selected.

    At the very least, the grid list should be AFTER the full post content! I don’t like the featured image being at the top either.

    Please advise.
    Thanks.

    Hi @numpdog

    Thanks for the web page link (https://regardingbooks.com/collecting-books-doesnt-count-as-hoarding/)

    The page link which you have provided is a single post link. It is controlled by your theme as it is dependent on it.

    I can see that you have added plugin shortcode in individual post itself. You should create a separate page like News / Blog or etc and put the plugin shortcode in that.

    Now newly created page will display the listing of your post. User will click on the individual post and navigate to inside. Also do not forgot to remove the plugin shortcode from individual post content.

    I think this scenario will be helpful to you.

    I do have a separate page with the plugin shortcode: https://regardingbooks.com/blog-page/

    What do you mean by “do not forgot to remove the plugin shortcode from individual post content”? I thought the same shortcode was supposed to be in each individual blog post. Is this not correct?

    If I remove the shortcode from the individual post, it shows the featured image (which I don’t want) followed by the post content and there is no visible link to other individual posts; you have to go to the menu again to see the blog page with the list of blog posts.

    Hi @numpdog

    Thanks for the web page link.

    For your query,

    1) I thought the same shortcode was supposed to be in each individual blog post. Is this not correct?

    Ans – You can but generally people do not do this. You can take a look at some website. You can see a separate page for Blog / News.

    If you add shortcode in individual post then user will see the same thing in individual post also which creates some confusion.

    Some people display related post at the end of post content. Some theme supports this. Right now plugin does not have this feature but you can achieve this with little coding.

    2) It shows the featured image (which I don’t want) followed by the post content and there is no visible link to other individual posts; you have to go to the menu again to see the blog page with the list of blog posts.

    Ans – Yes, It depends on you how you want to set it up. The single page is dependent on your theme how they designed it. I have told you the general scenario.

    I think some theme reference will help you in this.
