The More Tag allows you to show a short summary of your post content. Usually, when you insert the More Tag, a link to the full content of the article will be added directly after the excerpt. The Read More tag can be placed anywhere in your content, and you can customize it to say whatever you want.
Adding More Tag
The More Tag button can be found in the visual editor toolbar. To add the More Tag, place your cursor in the post content where you want the More Tag to appear. In the visual editor toolbar, click on the “Insert Read More tag” button.
Customize More Tag
By default, “Read More” or “Continue Reading” will appear as a text for the link but you can easily change it to any text you want.
- Click on the Text tab in the upper right corner of the post editor to open the HTML editor.
- Look for <!–more–> in the HTML editor. Add a space after “more” and then type your custom text: <!–more View More–>. As a result, your link will display “View More” instead of the default text.
Make sure to publish your post when you are ready.
