I have inserted the -more- tag and it appears correctly in the back end. However, it doesn’t show in the home page which is the blog page. If I use the word limit setting, the display works. However if I set the word limit to 220 and use the -more- tag there is no “Continue Reading” displayed.
When the excerpt is blank, the home page formatting of the post is lost. (no line feed) If I use the excerpt and no -more- tag, the “Continue Reading” is not displayed.
Sorry if I was unclear. Thanks for the quick response.
