Read More tag not working

    Currently I used Dyad 2 theme.
    At first I use the excerpt box feature, and I found out that the feature will prevent the post from showing “read more”.
    So I emptied the box and use the “insert read more tag” in the post.
    However, still the “read more” tag won’t show up.
    Can someone assist me? I’m using WordPress.com.
    Any help much appreciated.
    I really love this theme.

    The blog I need help with is cookbooks.home.blog.

    Hi there, because the Dyad 2 theme automatically truncates the post on the site’s front page and adds a special “read more” button, you don’t need to manually add the “Read More” tag to your posts. https://wordpress.com/theme/dyad-2

    Hope that helps, but if you have any other question about this, please let us know.

    Yes, I agree with @grandmasquarepants. When my excerpt box is empty, the “read more” button shows. Yet, when I have have the box filled in with my content, the read more button disappears.

    My request is that I have my content filled-in the excerpt box and the “Read More” button show too.

    Please advise any assistance. Thanks much.

    Hello again, Dyad 2 does not support the excerpt feature.

    If you want to use hand-crafted excerpts, you’ll need to switch to a different theme.
