Kepler Demo Site

About the content and using excerpts

By default full content gets shown in Kepler listing pages like the Posts page.

This is defined via

<?php the_content( __( 'Read More →', 'it-l10n-BuilderChild-Kepler' ) ); ?>

in child theme's content.php.

To break the content and have "Read More →" appear below each post similar to the demo Posts page, use more tag built in WordPress. i.e., by inserting


wherever you want the post to split up when in HTML view of the post editor.

If you would like to show excerpts instead of full content (or partial content using more tag),

1. Replace

<?php the_content( __( 'Read More →', 'it-l10n-BuilderChild-Kepler' ) ); ?>


<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

in content.php.

2. Add the following at the end of child theme's style.css:

function new_excerpt_more($more) {
	global $post;
	return '<div class="readmore"><a href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) . '">Read More →</a></div>';
add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');

Note: Formatting i.e., HTML code like paragraph, strong tags will get stripped in auto excerpts. If you would like formatting to retain, use manual excerpts.
