    hi All,

    If you scroll down this page to Icon Box area called ‘Oferta’ you will see 4 icon boxes next to each other. I tried to insert ‘Read More’ tag in the Content of each of these icon boxes so that not the whole content is initially visible.
    However as you can see this does not work

    Please advise
    Many thanks,


    Hey TheElear!

    Could you please provide us with a temporary admin login so that we can take a closer look? You can post the details in the Private Content section of your reply.



    Hi, Many thanks for your quick reply.
    Please see the details below:



    I think I misunderstood your first post, I think you want to have a “show more” button which will expand and show the whole content, correct?

    Best regards,



    you are correct. I want to have this ‘Read More’ link that will expand. It is not a button, It is a link that you put in the content area of the Icon Box.
    But it does not work.




    link from your first post does not work for me. I get a “Nothing found” error. Can you send us a new link where we can see the issue?
    Please upgrade to Enfold v.3.2.2.




    Weird. It works for me fine.
    Anyway. If you scroll to the footer you will see in the 2nd column ‘Login’ link




    I think what you are requesting is out of support scope unfortunately, it would take a lot of custom CSS and JavaScript to achieve that. A regular Read More link is usually just a link directing to a page with the full story which is very straight forward to put in. If you want to hire a freelancer we can recommend

    Best regards,


    Hi Rikard,

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    My point is that ‘Read More’ link does not show at all!
    You can insert it in the content area of the Icon Box but it does not show up on the front end.




    Oh sorry, I must have misunderstood you. I tried entering a read more link at the bottom and like you say, it’s not showing. But if it’s added at the top it is, so I’m guessing it’s your more tag in the middle there. Could you try to remove it to see if it helps?

    <a href="#">Read more</a>

    Best regards,


    Hi Rikard,

    I think you are checking different thing.

    Go to this website
    Scroll down to ‘Oferta’ where there are 4 columns each contains Icon Box.
    Each box has a bit of text. Check the first with the heart icon.

    Log on. When you edit this text you use content box (like for any standard post) in Advanced Editor.
    In this box you can type text and put ‘Read’ More’ link in Visual mode (in text mode it is <!–more–> )
    This is standard functionality of WordPress. In icon boxes this does not work.

    Please advise is this a bug that is going to be rectified in the next theme update?
    Can this be temporarily fixed now?




    I think we’ve been on the same page all along but the more tag only works when working with posts within the WordPress loop, and these elements are not connected to any posts or in a loop. In the blog feed the Read More link will go to the full post, but where would the Read More link go in this instance? You would have to set them manually in this case.



    Hi Rikard,
    Cześć Piotr,

    let me join here.
    If I understood correct, for my subpage, I have to insert all this code:

    global $more;
    $more = 0;
    //The code must be inserted ahead of the call the_content, but AFTER the_post()
    <?php the_content('Continue Reading'); ?>

    to ../wp-content/themes/enfold/includes/loop-page.php file, after the_post but before the_content.
    Am I right?
    Is there anything I need to change in this code?




    Are you trying to use the read more tag? You would just need to add it to your post content from the WYSIWYG editor. I’m not sure if that’s what your trying to do though so go ahead and send us a link to your page so we can get a better idea of what your trying to do.

    Best regards,
