Milestone: 5.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.0
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


The excerpts do not have a "Read more" link, but display a [...] instead. While excerpts are not widely used in TwentyNineteen, they do appear in archive pages.

  • Keywords needs-patch added

We may want to create a twentynineteen_excerpt_more function, similar to the Twenty Sixteen filter.

Note: filters like that apparently are not compatible yet with the Latest Posts block (but the block editor issue needs fixing anyway for other themes' existing filters).

I created a patch for this. It's pretty much a direct copy of the excerpt_more filter function from the TwentySeventeen theme :)

Twenty Nineteen: Add "Continue reading" link for post excerpts.

This ensures that archive pages have a meaningful link text after the excerpts.
