  • Hi toffa97

    Add the read more tag from where you want to stop the article and show a read more button please follow given help article

    Let me know if you have any confusion.

  • Ehy, thank u, it worked, but if i want to choose a default number of words after which wordpress put the tag automatically? 

    Because i don't wont different length of  "last article box". I want all of them of the same size.
  • Hi

    Ok its required some code customization please follow the instructions carefully.

    As we know you are using the child theme already.

    1. Find the code below and paste this in your child theme functions.php in the bottom.

    function spicepress_news_event_excerpt()
    global $post;
    $excerpt = get_the_content();
    $excerpt = strip_tags(preg_replace(" (\[.*?\])",'',$excerpt));
    $excerpt = strip_shortcodes($excerpt);
    $original_len = strlen($excerpt);
    $excerpt = mb_strimwidth($excerpt, 0, 145, "....");
    if($original_len>275) {
    $excerpt = $excerpt;
    return $excerpt . '<a href="' . get_permalink() . '" class="more-link">'.__('Read More','spicepress').'</a>';
    return $excerpt;
    2.  Now go to in your parent theme directory and copy index-news.php and paste in child theme directory.

    3. Go to child theme directory >> index-news.php and find line number 63 and replace
    <?php the_content(__('Read More','spicepress')); ?>
    <?php echo spicepress_news_event_excerpt(); ?>

    Hope this will work for you.

    If you have any confusion please have a look in attached screenshot
