Support » Fixing WordPress » Using both excerpt and more

  • I would like to use automatic excerpt but still have the (more..) link under the excerpt.
    But if I change the following in index.php:

    <div class="storycontent">
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    </div>

    to

    <div class="storycontent">
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    </div>

    the (more..) link isn’t showing anymore. Is it any way to do this?

    Hi, I can’t help with your problem, fdaa, since I’m pretty new to WordPress stuff myself. But I have a related question for the WP gurus out there.
    I am using the <!–more–> tags in my entries and it works great on my main page. If a visitor wants to see more it takes them right to the single entry page. No prob.
    So… why use the_excerpt ?? Am I missing something here? Don’t these two methods really do the same thing, or is there some fine distinction between the two?

    The excerpt is automatic, whereas using the ‘more’ needs more user actions.
