The Read More Option

Post by WineMan » Wed May 11, 2022 3:38 pm

Is there a specific number of words or characters that needs to be written before the "Read More" option is triggered?

Hi,

though Madekozu is right - control where the "read more" link is by inserting [more] - the Readmore plugin is indeed capable of doing this automatically.

Check out fp-plugins/readmore/plugin.readmore.php where you can change the MODE variable, e.g. to "sentence":

Code: Select all

	$MODE = 'sentence';

	$CHOP_AT = 4; // characters or sentences
This will chop all your entries after 4 sentences (technically, after the fourth occurence of a period/exclamation mark/question mark followed by a blank).

This is more like a "hidden feature" - maybe we should add a plugin settings tab to the Admin Area so the user could set the desired plugin mode there conveniently. Not sure if this is really needed, though; you might want to control the behaviour by yourself.

All the best,
Arvid

The Read More works for me after following Madekozu's suggestion. Thanks for the hidden tip, I will check into that.

yes, thanks Arvid - did not know about this feature !

also, I have used the 'readmore' with no wording preceding it.
ie. A video clip or image - readmore - followed by ... and the rest of the story.
