Is there not an easier way to add a read more button than I did?
I spent a little too much time on this, but finally got it working!
<h2><?php echo strip_tags( get_the_excerpt() ); ?> <?php if( str_word_count( get_the_excerpt() ) > 16 ) : ?> <a style="font-size: .6em;" href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">READ MORE</a> <?php endif; ?> </h2>
Although, I thought the logic could have been like this:
<?php if( get_the_excerpt() ) : ?>
Wouldn't this if statement check to see if there is an excerpt for the post and then display read more? I thought this way would work..
