I inserted “more” tags into posts so that only the first paragraph would appear on the homepage and category landing pages but the more tag has prevented the entire post from ever showing up:
HOME: http://www.gibbshoustonpauw.com/ (yellowsky)
CATEGORY LANDING PAGE: http://www.gibbshoustonpauw.com/recent-news/
I would like only an excerpt to appear on home and landing pages and (most obviously) the full post to appear on the, uh, full post.
Tearing. Hair. Out. Thanks in advance.September 4, 2013 at 4:46 pm #139365
Can you create an administrator account and send me it to avia.josue (at) gmail.com so i can check it personally?

I did some tests and was unable to find the source of the issue, however i found that if you create a new post the error won’t occur, i duplicated the “International Travel Requirements” post and it does work as expected, see links below:
Both displaying at News page: http://www.gibbshoustonpauw.com/recent-news/
To sum up, try duplicating the posts, if it gets fixed, delete the older ones.

it seems it has something to do with the template. I wanted it to have the contextual news_posts menu in the right sidebar (as it is on the landing page) but, for some reason, that causes havoc with the “more” tag. I have the post set to no-sidebar for the time being but if you have any thoughts on why this is occurring, would love to know.September 4, 2013 at 10:56 pm #139369
I realized this as the new post you created were set to default template, rather than the custom template I had created. Also, in that custom template, I had specified “full post”.September 5, 2013 at 12:02 pm #139370
