    Hi,

    when using YARPP together with an excerpt / teaser plugin, that replaces part of the text with a “read more” option e.g. on the homepage, with some of these plugins, although not all of them, YARPP results are still shown. I wonder whether there is a way to influence this from YARPP’s side, or would I need to rather ask the authors of those plugins?

    Hi @luckilyhappy, I haven’t used any of those plugins so I don’t think I can give a good answer yet. Can you share a link to one of those plugins, and maybe a link to a site where you’re having this issue? That would help a lot in figuring out what to do.

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your response. Here are two examples:

    Here, it works like intended, together with a great plugin that has unfortunately not been updated since years, Post Teaser. Of course, I could (should?) replace it with the third one named below, but I like how it gives the number of words and expected reading time.

    Here, I… am actually also using Post Teaser, as I see now, but there the YARPP-results are shown on the home page, and I do not have any idea why…

    And with a third page, I am using Easy Custom Auto Excerpt, and it works as intended, YARPP results are not shown on the main page. (It is this page, but it will be probably still be behind a login protection if you read this. (I still need to work on the site before I can make it public again. I could give you the login, if that would help, if you could let me know where I could sent it to you privately, but not publicaly on the forum)

    There are other plugins like Post Teaser and Easy Custom Auto Excerpt, e.g., but n ot limited to Advanced Excerpt, Read More Exerpt Link and Multiple Excerpt Lengths.

    I know I could just use the “Read More” tag, but I find it more convenient to let it automatically be regulated by a plugin, that allows me to customise further.

    P. S.: By the way, I had meant to name this thread “Working with Ecerpt / Teaser Plugins”, but misspelled… Feel free to move it, if you can.

    Hi @luckilyhappy, thanks for the info. So it sounds like it’s just blog.pfade-durch-das-netz.de that isn’t working as intended.
    Have you checked the YARPP setting to “Also display in archives”? (Here’s a screenshot) If that’s checked, YARPP’s results will be added on the homepage and other archive pages. I think you want to leave it UNchecked.

    Let me know if that helps!

    You are right, that was the reason, thank you! (I would not have thought of that – maybe you could change the description of the check box to something like “Also display in archives and on the home or blog page” or “Also display in archives, including home or blog page” or something in that direction?)
