Almost finished my website, but ran into one problem: When you view the archive of a category or do a search, the "more" (or "continue reading") link/ tag doesn't appear. It words fine on the homepage.

Any help would be appreciated - mainly about the category post bit.

Cheers, Will.

review this codex and see if the info in it can help: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More

  • Quote: "The rest of the post continues, but when viewed on the non-single/non-permalink web page such as archives, categories, front page, and searches, the post is shown as an excerpt to the more point." Exactly what it doesn't do and I want it to do. Jun 12, 2011 at 7:38

Having looked at my 'loop.php' file like Michael said, I replaced

<div class="entry-summary">
            <?php the_excrept(); ?></div><!-- .entry-summary -->


<div class="entry-summary">
            <?php the_content( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></div><!-- .entry-summary -->

Whenever it appeared (Twice, in my case)

Cheers, Will


For some reason, the solutions I found here and on other sites didn't work for me. But I found a very simple solution, you can read about it here.

<div class="entry">
    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"> <?php the_title(); ?></a>
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?><em><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Link naar volledig artikel"><br/>Lees hier verder...</a></em>
    <p><small><?php the_author(); ?>, <?php the_time('j F Y') ?></small></p>

I used it on my category.php file, but I'm sure it works exactly the same on archive.php or search.php.
