    I really love your GeneratePress theme. I’m learning how to use it on a website for a School Bond issue.

    I would like to use hand crafted “excerpts” in the blog post page. I and the other team members will craft the excerpts manually to generate interest.

    However, when I do so, the “Read More” button that I really like disappears. It only shows up on posts where I don’t define a hand crafted excerpt and let the theme grab the first X characters from the post.

    It seems to me if I choose to use the “Read More” button that this button should show up whether I use a hand crafted excerpt or not. Can this be fixed in a future update?

    Hi Scott,

    This has actually been brought up a couple times now and we are looking into it.

    Here is the interim solution:

    Thanks for letting me know you are looking into it for a future update. I’m not too keen on editing even a child theme’s functions.php file.

    Instead I’ve added a plugin called “Read More Excerpt Link” and added some CSS to make it look like a button:

    /* create what looks like a Read More button */
    .read-more-link {background-color:#222; padding:.5rem 1rem; color:white !important; border-radius:1rem;}
    .read-more-link:hover {background-color:#999;}

    Let me know when you’ve added it to the theme and I’ll pull the CSS and plugin out.

    Thanks again,




    Thanks for sharing your solution!
