Adding "Read more" link in Footer...?
 
Hi-

How do I add a text link in the homepage post footer? For example "Read more" test link that links to single post page? And more it right justified?

Also, is it possible to change the size of the footer text?

Many thanks!

See Theme Options -> Read More Text, i.e.

Continue reading %post-title%

To make it right-aligned ass a CSS Insert

a.more-link {
float: right;
}


Added:

Or, if you want to put it into the post footer (and not into the post-bodycopy), put something like this into the apprpriate section at Post/Page Info Items

Continue reading <a href="%permalink%">%post-title%</a>

To right-align it

<span style="float:right">Continue reading <a href="%permalink%">%post-title%</a></span>

If it somehow interferes with the other post info items:

<div style="float:right">Continue reading <a href="%permalink%">%post-title%</a></div>

This should put it into its own line instead of aligning it with the other post info items

Thanks Flynn!
It worked great, except for some reason the "Read More..." line moved below the footer box (see my footer below). :confused:

Did you undo this? I can't seem to see it on your home page

Hi Juggle-

Thanks for your help, I put it back the way it was. Can you take a look?

update: just looked in Firefox, now I see the issue, plus the Firefox error console is showing 4 errors and dozens of warnings

Ok, here is how to fix it. The <span>...</span> info must come first . Where you have:

Posted in: %categories-linked(', ')% <span style="float:right">Do press on reading %post-title%<a href="%permalink%"></a></span>

change it to:

<span style="float:right">Do press on reading %post-title%<a href="%permalink%"></a></span> Posted in: %categories-linked(', ')%

This is not what i searched for.I am searching for a method where i can put a custom clickable link in posts footer,it has nothing to do with read more..:confused:

Thanks Juggle!! :)

Hamlet, the read more link is the same as a custom link, just change the text "read more".
