WordPress Read Article / Comment »

    I notice on the css-tricks front page on a post it says ‘Read Article / Comment »’ and it goes to a div of more but it only shows when there is more content. how do you do that?

    the front page is stealing an excerpt from the loop, so basically, there is a page made for the full post, but on the home page he is stealing the excerpt.

    on a page you want the excerpt it needds to be a php page and have this at the top:

    < ?php // Include WordPress define('WP_USE_THEMES', false); require('/path to your header/wp-blog-header.php'); query_posts('showposts=1');// 1 or more ?>

    then somewhere on that page you want to show the excerpt, then place this in your page:


    < ?php while (have_posts()): the_post(); ?>

    < ?php the_title(); ?>

    < ?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    “>Read more…

    < ?php endwhile; ?>
