I have created a custom plugin that pulls video and images out of a post and puts them into a nicely formatted set of galleries. The only problem is that the plugin doesn't allow me to put a video or image before the more tag without creating a mini gallery. Is there a name or way to adjust my plugin to make it only read the_content that comes AFTER the more tag?


I think you can use the get_extended( $post ) function; that returns an array with different parts of the content. See this example which works inside the Loop:

$content_arr = get_extended( get_the_content() ); 
var_dump( $content_arr );
echo $content_arr['main'];  //Display the part before the more tag
