    Hi there,

    I have something I am stuck on. On the homepage where the post excerpts are displayed, I would like to be able to write a specific text. I can do this by writing a manual excerpt for each post in the box provided, but when I do this I lose the “read more” tag and link.

    I have looked around at the WordPress and Ribsosome forums and I just can’t find how to fix this. I have tried adding <!–Read more–!> directly to the manual excerpt, but it doesn’t work.
    This is an example: https://sickofibs.com/diet/breakfast-bloat/

    Could you tell me how to fix this, please?

    With thanks,


    Juan de la Cruz

    Hi Alison,

    Excerpt concept may be confusing at first. Ribosome Pro creates and manages its own excerpts (to which it adds the text ‘Read more’) but not when the ‘Insert Read More tag’ function is used in the editor or when text is added using the ‘Excerpt’ box. In these last two cases who manages the excerpts is the WordPress itself. You lose the text ‘Read more’ because in that case the excerpt is handled by WordPress directly (not the theme) and does not add the text ‘Read more’.

    You can find more information at https://codex.wordpress.org/Excerpt.
