Hi - there's a "read more" link on each blog entry of my blog page, but it doesn't link through to the single blog post page. It's linking to the blog page. Not sure where to look to fix that. Any help much appreciated. thanks!

This is your sample link (as pointed by READ MORE) for the post Artist: The DUDEZ:
<a class="read-more" href="http://development10.crispyconnection.com/get-connected/">Read More</a>

Open in new window

You must give exact / complete path of your article in anchor. You already have the correct link for the header. Just change the link of READ MORE to the one which you gave for header / title href="http://development10.crispyconnection.com/artist-feature/the-dudez/".

It seems I'll have an easier time with removing the current "read more" and using a plugin to re-insert it.

From this page http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More it talks about removing the "read more" link. Its states:

To remove the teaser:

Change the_content(); in your index.php to (i.e., the second parameter controls this):

the_content('',FALSE,'');

I don't see "the_content" in my index.php file. I looked at both the child and parent index.php file.

I'm seeing some other posts about creating code in the child theme style.css to remove the "read more", but I don't see the actual code to insert.
