    For some reason the “read more” button isn’t appearing on the category pages. Could someone please help me figure out how to add it?

    Thanks!

    Here’s a test link:

    That website is just darling! What a CUTE FACE!

    Are you using the tag in your post? Excerpt or Content Limit.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Here’s the way I’m using it now: http://noahsdad.com/therapy/ and here is the test site : http://noahsdad.com/test/therapy/

    They way it worked with my old theme was I would put some text in the excerpt area (usually the first few paragraphs) in the compose screen and it would put that text with the read more link on below on the home page and archives. I’d like it to the same thing here.

     

    Thanks for your help and for the kind words about our little boy. :)

    Awww, that’s a stumper for me. Let me get someone more experienced at this one.

    My experience is that you have to add the More tag manually after the first couple grafs, or wherever you want it, in the main editor. The tag itself is in the toolbar on both the visual and the txt editors.

    I pretty much ignore the Excerpt field.

    Be it ever so run down, there’s no place like FriendFeed. ;-)

    Thanks MB, he’s rather use the Excerpt. I may have a solution for him shortly. I’d actually like to know how to use this also. Sometimes the lead-in that you want will not necessarily be the first sentence or paragraph you have in your blog.

    @anitac, thanks! It’s strange that it doesn’t show up. If you check out the same link (minus the “test” part) you’ll see how it looked on my old theme. I had to use the expert on that theme so the big image in the post didn’t show vs the featured image…if that makes sense.
