The More block

The More block (or the More tag) allows to display a short summary of your post content. Usually, when you insert the More block, a link to the full content of the article will be added directly after the excerpt. It can be placed anywhere in your content.

Block Editor

  1. Open your post or page in the Editor.
  2. Click on the Inserter icon to open a list of available blocks.
  3. Search for the More block and click on it to add it to the post or page.

Customizing the More block

By default, the More block displays the Read More or Continue Reading text. It all depends on the theme. WordPress allows to change this text, so you can have a custom call to action text. 

Once you’ve added the More Block, you can edit the Read More text by clicking in the middle of the dashed lines, erasing the text and typing any text you want.

Classic Editor

  1. Open your post or page in the Editor.
  2. Place your cursor in the post content where you want the post to cut off.
  3. In the visual editor toolbar, click on the Insert Read More tag button.

Customizing the More tag

  1. Click on the Text tab in the upper right corner of the Editor to open the HTML editor.
  2. Look for <!–more–> in the HTML editor. Add a space after “more” and then type your custom text: <!–more Learn More–>. As a result, your link will display “Learn More” instead of the default text.
  3. Update or publish your page when you are ready.
