    Good evening. I’d like to add a [...] below my featured post at like it appears in the older posts that appear below my featured post.
    Can anyone assist me with an easy way to do this?
    I really don’t want to do an customization to my theme’s code, but I would like the [...] to appear below the post.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Go to Genesis > Theme Settings > Content Archives and change the settings there.

    There’s also a drop down where you can select to display post excerpts or display post content with a character limit.

    Choosing excerpts will give you the brackets [...] without a read more link.

    Choosing content will give you the ability to determine how long the excerpt is and also display a clickable read more link.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Thanks. I still get the [...] effect, so I just changed the feature to get the same effect. I would still like to have them all be … rather than [...].
