Thank you, Flamenco, I’d forgotten about putting files from the framework into the child theme. Although, as you say, it’s not entirely future proof, it works!!!
I’d forgotten to say why I wanted to do this: http://www.lynashworth.co.uk/ – it seems the only way to get this background image effect to work. But I may be wrong.
Yes, filters, hooks and CSS are the best ways to achieve what you want with Genesis … if you know how!!!
All the best, Rob
MoodyRiviera, great that you got the button. It can be a bit of a hassle to use this plugin, I agree, there seems to be a lot of questions about it.
Actually, weslinda, I’m sorry I didn’t really get your solution before. I didn’t realise you can put HTML into the Excerpts and therefore but those buttons in there. It’s a bit hacky but it’ll work. Thank you.
Thank you again, Dave. I’ve had a look at your site and I really enjoyed your rendition of Summertime.
Dave, thank you so much. Thank you for the solution and the explanation. Much appreciated.
but, if you want it to drop down below the text it’s in and become a button, I don’t think you’ll be able to, as the “Continue Reading” is part of the text excerpt.
Thanks, small world indeed! Glad you’ve been to my website and seen my YouTube stuff!
Best of luck this weekend. See if you can get the button to appear! It’s good that you’re doing it with Posts rather than Pages because it seems to work better with them.
Thanks, weslinda, but I want to be able to specify the text and have the button. I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before but it doesn’t seem to be possible this time unfortunately.
MoodyRiviera, with pleasure. http://robcubbon.com/creating-a-wordpress-business-website-agency-studiopress/ here is a video of how I did it plus a screenshot of the exact settings I used to specify the text with the more tag and have a button. Unfortunately, it seems to work sometimes but not others.
<p>Thank you, Susan. </p>
Thanks, weslinda, that’s great … but, now I don’t get a Continue Reading/Read More link or Continue Reading/Read More button!
Thanks for your settings, MoodyRiviera, do you get a Continue Reading link at least?
I managed to get the blue buttons to work on Agency here: http://emarketing-consultants.com/ using the settings I described above (using the more tag) but I can’t get it to work on the Sample Child Theme.
I have the “Limit content to … characters” blank and “Display post content” this should cut the content off at the more tag. At least that’s what happens on another website where I’ve used Genesis Responsive Slider.
I’ve copied the settings exactly.
The problem is the more tags are being converted to span id=”more-9″ in the HTML.
Thanks, weslinda, but I’m afraid it didn’t work.
It appears that the more tags are working for the pages as well as the post, they’re just not working in the Genesis Responsive Slider.
I have Content Archives in the Genesis Settings on “Display post content” and the Slider content settings on “Display post content”. The more tags work on pages in an archive page such as a search query. However they don’t work on the Genesis Responsive Slider. It attempts to display the whole page contents, images, everything. I need to be able to control where it stops exactly and you can’t do that on the other option which is “Display post excerpts” which works but you have to specify an arbitrary character count.
Just another point – this seems to be a Genesis Responsive Slider issue. It seems to be converting the more tag to that HTML span id in the slider but not anywhere else.
This is really annoying because it is only by using the more tag you can have specific text in the slider – otherwise you have a general character count excerpt.
