    1. I can see from the demo version I can have an ‘about me section’ on the RHS – How do I do this when there is no widget?

    2. My ‘continue reading’ is not visible on posts – how do i do this? I have tagged and used the summary but nothing.

    The blog I need help with is ohsolovelyhelen.com.

    Hi Helen,

    1. I can see from the demo version I can have an ‘about me section’ on the RHS – How do I do this when there is no widget?

    I believe what is being used to create that “about me section” is a Text Widget (or possibly a Custom HTML Widget). But with either one, you’ll be able to use HTML in order to create a custom look like what’s displayed in the demo.

    2. My ‘continue reading’ is not visible on posts – how do i do this? I have tagged and used the summary but nothing.

    Try adding a Read More tag to your post. You can do this in your editor with the Read More tag button.

    Doing that should add a “continue reading” button to your posts.

    Thanks so much!
    Text widget worked!

    In regards to the ‘continue reading’ – i have this […] logo. Any idea how it can be like the demo version where it says ‘continue reading’ in a nice box?

    Thanks for your help!

    I’m glad you were able to get the text widget working :)

    In regards to the ‘continue reading’ – i have this […] logo. Any idea how it can be like the demo version where it says ‘continue reading’ in a nice box?

    Were you able to try out the Read More tag as mentioned above? The reason that ellipsis (those three dots) is showing is because you haven’t set a “cut-off point” in you post to tell your theme how much of the first part you want to show.

    You can truncate your blog entries so that only the first part of a posts is displayed on the home and archive pages. When you do this, a link will be placed directly after your excerpt, pointing the reader to the full post.

    I’m quite sure this will take of that issue, but what I’m not certain of is whether or not it’ll also produce that “continue reading” button. This is something you’ll have to try out first, as I don’t have access to the premium theme you’re currently using, so I can’t test this out myself. Let me know how it goes.
