comment How can I create a “Read More” link using the_excerpt() on a static front page?
I marked this question as an answer, but the solution is till injecting two "read more" tags. I just removed the ellipsis from the second tag, which works for me, but it's not really perfect.

I should add that I removed my original code from functions.php.

So, I tried your code, and it seems to work. Only problem is, I get a double ellipsis. It's live on stuandjessproductions.com right now, if you want to see. Do you have any ideas?

I've added some of the code from the template page (the relevant bit). If you want to see the whole thing, I can post it... but it's kinda long.

I haven't added anything to the Excerpt text field on the post, nor do I intend to. Like I said, the idea is to make things as low maintenance as possible for the client. The current code does truncate the post to 55 words, or whatever the default is, and adds the ellipsis. The problem is that my normal method for turning that ellipsis into a "Read More" link doesn't seem to be working.
