Sitka v1.3 out now! [Changelog] [How to update]


Add "Read More" link to Grid Layout posts in Hemlock

Please note: This FAQ Article is specifically for the Hemlock theme.

By default, the "Continue Reading" link won't appear for Grid Layout posts. If you would like to have this link appear below each grid item, you can follow these steps.

Open up your "content-grid.php" theme file.
Typically, you can access this via Appearance > Editor.

On Line 10, you will see this line of code:

<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

Directly below this line of code, create a new blank line.
On this new, blank line (Line 11), copy and paste the following code:

<span class="more-button"><a class="more-link" href="<?php echo get_permalink() ?>">Continue Reading...</a></span>

Be sure to save the changes to this file when finished.

Lastly, go to Appearance > Customize > Custom CSS and copy & paste the following:

a.more-link {font-weight: 700;}
.more-button {display: block; margin-bottom: 10px;}

Save changes when finished.
