    Hi,

    I installed Genesis Featured Widget Amplified. I am using the Magazine Pro theme. I would like to show post excerpts instead of content limits. But when I changed the settings to show post excerpts the “Read More” button disappears. Does anyone know how to have it show up, or at least “Read more” inline?

    Thanks.

    I realized this is the default for the regular Genesis Featured Widget as well. I did some more research on here, and found a link to this post: http://wpsmith.net/2011/wp/how-to-add-read-more-link-to-excerpts-in-your-genesis-child-theme/

    but the code snippet is not working for me. It suggests adding this to your functions.php file:

    // Add Read More Link to Excerpts
    add_filter(‘excerpt_more’, ‘get_read_more_link’);
    add_filter( ‘the_content_more_link’, ‘get_read_more_link’ );
    function get_read_more_link() {
    return ‘… Read More…‘;
    }

    Could this possibly have something to do with the Magazine Pro child theme specifically? I tried deactivating the Amplified widget and that did not help.
