on a site am writing, on the home page i want to achieve the following
- Posts should appear as excerpts with links to full article
- Editors should have the power to explicitly control excerpt length
I tried the following solution:
- create template file called home.php
- use the_excerpt() in the loop
'read more' link is missing if user specifies explicit 'more'
<!--more--> when creating a post but strangely if explicit 'more' is not specified in post, the link to full article is available. What the hell is going on?
