My wife wants to accomplish the same thing as MacMyDay = make the automatically inserted ellipsis "[...]" be clickable -- linking to the full post on a single post page.
I'm comfortable editing the functions.php file but am concerned that this is a change I will have to go back in and re-do every time the theme is updated/re-installed ...that is the case, right?
Is the mod to functions.php still the best way to perform this magic?
BTW -- how is it determined how long the "automatic excerpt" is? Can/could that be modified.
I've tried to convince Pam that she should start using the "More" button, but she's gotten very used to having the excerpt process happen without input from her.
