Hmm, I see what you mean.
The way it is now, people do have options – they can:
a) Show excerpts, while choosing to display more using the read more tag
b) Show full posts, while choosing to cut off the post using the read more tag
There was a couple cases I found where people needed to use the read more tag on some posts, but not all, but didn’t want the full post showing for the posts they didn’t want to use the read more tag on.
So here’s what you can do:
1. Create a child theme: http://generatepress.com/api/themes/generatepress_child.zip
2. Add this file to your child theme: https://gist.github.com/generatepress/02e4a79caa0f8a5db7dc
You have to name it content.php, and it must be placed in your child theme folder.
Basically, this is a copy of the theme’s content.php file, but we set the $more_tag variable to false so it will ignore any more tags you have.
The only thing with this is you won’t receive updated content.php files when I update the theme, so it’s worth checking out the new content.php files now and then to make sure it’s all updated.
Hope this helps 🙂
