I'm having a heck of a time with this! I'm trying to force this page to only show a limited amount of words regardless if they insert a readmore tag.
I was going to use the_excerpt, but it doesn't add a readmore link at the end of the excerpt.
I have my index page pulling my blog roll by using this code:
<div class="entry-content"> <?php /* translators: %s: Name of current post */ the_content( sprintf( __( 'more %s <span class="meta-nav">...</span>', 'gateway' ), the_title( '<span class="screen-reader-text">"', '"</span>', false ) ) ); ?> </div>
In my reading settings I have set "For each article in a feed, show" to "summary".
So I guess my question is this: Is there a away to limit the_content() or alternatively add a read more to the_excerpt()?
