Hey, is it possible that i can put a chunk of code somewhere and it will show up after the more tag seperator but within the post ?

I mean if i put more seperator after first paragraph then on post areas after that will show up the code i will put.. probably some html with a twitter and rss link.

Help is appreicated :) cheers Ayaz

k i found the answer on researching and modifying a code i found :

add_filter('the_content', 'adds_block');

function adds_block($content){
    if (is_single()) 
//  return $content;
    global $post;
$thePostID = $post->ID;
$test = '<span id="more-' .$thePostID.'"></span>' ;
    return str_replace($test, ads(), $content);
function ads(){
    return 'Your Custom Code,,';

This will add your code after teh more tag area on the post page.

You can use the_tags hook to add your code to the tags output like this:

function add_my_code_after_tags($tags){
  $my_code =$tags . "your output here";
  return $my_code;

will it work after more tag placement within the post ? single.php ... – Ayaz Malik Feb 2 '11 at 16:28

A filter on the_content_more_link may be appropriate for you, the filter should give you full control over the more link, so you could essentially add to it, remove it, or pre/ap-pend some extra content.

Here's an example, uncomment the appropriate line to prepend or append(ie. place extra content before or after the link).

add_filter( 'the_content_more_link', 'custom_more_link', 1000 );

function custom_more_link( $more_link ) {

    $extra_more = '<br />My more link extra content';

    // Uncomment line below to prepend content
    //return $extra_more . $more_link;

    // Uncomment line below to append content
    //return $more_link . $extra_more;

NOTE: The extra content must be stored inside the variable returned.

Further reading/examples.

Hope that helps.. :)

but in this case wudn't it show on homepage or other pages which have more button available right ?, i wanted to make the area visible with in the post (single.php) – Ayaz Malik Feb 2 '11 at 16:27
It should work on the home page(if your theme calls the_content and not the_excerpt), but naturally not on a single post page(the more link is not shown there). – t31os Feb 2 '11 at 16:42
in my question i mentioned to work within the post page – Ayaz Malik Feb 2 '11 at 16:55
That's not how it reads, but i'll take your word on it being what you meant.. ;) Then really what you need is a shortcode that inserts the button in the relevant place, i'd suggest a read of the following: smashingmagazine.com/2009/02/02/mastering-wordpress-shortcodes – t31os Feb 2 '11 at 17:51
sorry my bad english , its not what i ws looking for becuase everything i would have to include a shortcode after more tag in the post editor, but it can do that work. So its not possible to just work on some function which will automatically put some text/code after the more tag in the post page ? – Ayaz Malik Feb 2 '11 at 18:07
