I turned on the Blog plugin-in and have a few questions:
On the blog or category pages, is it possible to add a “Read More” button or link to the end of the postexcerpt? Right now, any posts for which I wrote a custom excerpt doesn’t get a “read more.”
I know I can get a “read more” on all posts if I use WP Show Posts, but I was hoping “Blog” would take care of it all.
Here’s the page with the issue: https://www.janellereston.com/blog/ (Heads up that this is a romance author blog, so scantily clad people may appear in the book cover slideshow.)
Also, are there any plans to allow different settings under Customizer > Blog > Blog content for the blog and category pages than for a post page? I don’t like to have meta (tags, author, categories, etc) cluttering my blog and category pages, but I do like to include most meta on the post page itself.GP Premium 1.3May 22, 2017 at 6:07 pm #322557LeoStaffCustomer Support
I believe those options are coming but for now if you link me to a page and let me know what you want to hide I can provide some CSS solution.
Let me know.May 22, 2017 at 7:28 pm #322601dale

Dale i love that work you did in that https://www.janellereston.com/blog/ can i please learn from you. i dont have coding experience oooMay 26, 2017 at 6:36 am #324405dale
Most of what I did was with the GP settings for color and typography, actually. The only places I got fancy were with hover and fade effects, which I learned how to do in the w3 css tutorials you can find online. Oh, and I use plugins to display book galleries. One is by Supsystic and the other is AdRotate. Both are in the WordPress plugins directory and have free versions. Good luck!May 31, 2017 at 8:42 am #326661dale
I’m ready for that CSS you mentioned earlier. I’d like to hide categories and “leave comments” from category pages. Example: https://dalecameronlowry.com/category/for-writers/

Perfect! If I later decide to hide tags, would that be .tag-links?May 31, 2017 at 10:09 am #326703LeoStaffCustomer SupportMay 31, 2017 at 10:19 am #326708dale
