  • Hi
    About my blog: http://jbrunetfoto.net/blog/
    I have problems with this feature. I use the “Advanced Excerpt” plugin (because it’s the one recommended to me in this forum)

    1. In some post when you click on “Read More” the full post opens in a new window very rare. In other post it opens in the same window (which is what I want). (See screenshot 1, please)
    Screenshot 1

    2. I do not have any “Read More” control: In some posts that already appear complete (because they are short)if I want to remove “Read More”, I can not even if in the post has checked the box “Disable Read More”. (see screenshot 2, please)
    screenshot 2

    3. In some post the font size of the word “Read More” is rarely modified (see screenshot 3, please)

    The screenshots 4,5 and 6 are the settings I have (theme options, wordpress settings, advanced excerpt settings).

    Hi @josepb

    1. Since you are using a plugin for your excerpts, it is best that you coordinate with the plugin developer why some links open in new windows and some don’t.

    2. Can you please send over sample posts where this is happening?

    3. Try to manually specify the font size using CSS. You can use this snippet:

    a.read-more {
        font-size: 14px;
    }

    Thanks!

    Hi

    1. I use “Advanced excerpt” because it’s the plugin that the ePix support service recommended to me. I would not mind using any other plugin or even any of them to do the excerpts.

    Can I generate an excerpt using a standard WordPress method and totally disregarding this plugin? Or how else can I fix this?

    2. About my comment number 2. Examples:
    http://jbrunetfoto.net/kiss-me-una-mica-2/
    http://jbrunetfoto.net/maridatge-o-amor-a-primera-vista/
    In these entries I have marked “Disabled Read More” as I show in sreenshot number 2.
    However on the blog page http://jbrunetfoto.net/blog/ it is still showing “Read More” in those entryes.

    Regards

    Hi @josepb

    Yes you can definitely rely on the standard WordPress method and eliminate using the plugin. I think it was just recommended since you have more controls over the excerpt with this plugin.

    Also please check if eliminating the plugin also fixes issue on disabling “Read More” on a number of posts.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Can you tell me where I need to put this snipet exactly?
    a.read-more {
    font-size: 14px;
    }
    On the other hand the manual introduction of the excerpt in WordPress (through the “Text Block” of Visual Composer) is <!–more–> (not “read more”)
    Thanks,
    Josep

    Hi @josepb

    You have to enter that snippet under Appearance > Theme Options > Customize > Custom CSS

    Regards,

    Hi
    I have already done it.

    But the result is the same

    I have created this excerpt with the tag <!–more–> in the text block of visual composer

    Hi Josep,

    There is no need to introduce the <!-more-> tag to the blog post.

    You just need to make sure that Post Content is set to ‘Excerpt’ under Appearance > Theme Options > Blog .

    Currently, it is set to ‘Full Post’ that is why all the content is showing up.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    No, you didn’t understand me.
    If I put the option “excerpt” in Theme Options I can not control the image and the part of text that I want to show.

    Then there is almost nothing or very little content of the entrance.
    Look at the screenshot please.

    This is the reason why I want to control in which part of each paragraph I want to break.
    I just asked how to increase the size of the typography of this ““more”“.

    Regards,
    Josep

    Hi Josep,

    Thanks for explaining.

    If you will use post content and not excerpt and just introduce the < !-more-> tag then you will need to add custom codes to the theme’s functions.php to customize the read more text.

    You can read more about it here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More

    Thanks!

    This is too much complicated for me.
    Regards,
    Josep

    Hi Josep,

    Go to the section that says “Modify The Read More Link Text”. That snippet of code is to be added to the theme’s functions.php.

    You can specify any text you’d prefer to use as “Read More”.

    Thanks!
