    Hello,

    We’re interested in adding a “Read More” link to the blog excerpts generated by the ‘recent_posts’ shortcode. Is it possible to do that in the child theme? And if so, how can we add that feature?

    Thank you

    You can use more tag in posts .

    Pls go through this tutorial –

    That does not work. Even the content demo that I imported, which includes the “<!–more–>” tag, does not add a readmore link in the recent posts list generated by the shortcode. That only works in the regular blog page (generated by template).

    Moreover, if I specify a count of say 200 characters in the shortcode, it only displays around 97 characters.

    The following shortcode results in the attached.

    [recent_posts post_count=4 hide_thumbnail=”false” show_meta=”false” excerpt_count=200 image_size=”medium”]

    Looking for answers. Please advise. Thanks.
