    i have started to create a wordpress theme for my self and with the help of the designing-for-wordpress-complete-series i’m doing well and understanding the procedure.

    though from following the tutorial – on my home page a get all my posts showing one after the other in full – though i would like for them to appear in short version and then have the read more like

    at the moment i have this

    < ?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry »'); ?>

    i looked on the wordpress docs and it recommends to to the following : (though it does not work)

    < ?php the_content('read more'); ?>

    can you give me any suggestions

    thanks in advance

    You have to make sure in the post that you’ve written you’ve included the "more" tag. In HTML view it looks like this:


    You can also use the_excerpt(); if you’re never planning on having full posts on that page.
