Periplul meu începea în 2004, an când împreună cu un grup de portughezi vizitam pentru prima dată Cheile Nerei. Am rămas încântat de frumusețea locurilor și de atunci am început să văd altfel România, până atunci nu aș fi crezut că avem locuri precum cele din filme. Îmi place România și călătoresc cât pot de mult. În primii ani de la aderarea UE m-am grăbit să ajung în o mare parte de Europa, iar în 2009 am fondat Drum Liber. Am dedicat ultimii ani în mare măsură României, asortând călătoriile interne cu ieșiri "de studiu" în alte țări. Sunt convins că mintea călătorului este mai deschisă și experiențele la drum te îmbogățesc. Călătorește cu mine, pe Drum Liber!

  2. hi, I only want the #more-617 to be removed. I did what I had to do, I even change the link name from Continue Reading to Read this Article. I see that it did not apply to the blog posts. Does it apply to the new posts?

    1. I did not add this functionality, but it’s a good idea to remove it. Although it’s been a long time since first release, I’ll include this in the following update. Thanks!

  4. On I’m trying to change the „Continue Reading” to „More Details.”

    I changed the code in your plugin settings to the following and clicked save.

    More Details… «%title%»

    But continue reading still appears.

    Did I do something wrong?



    1. @Scott See
      Can you please tell me what version of WordPress you use and what other plugins you have activated (+versions), so I can try debugging? Thanks!

  5. I want to change „Continue Reading…” to „VIEW FULL GALLERY”

    The instructions say: %linktext% – The linktext provided by WordPress. By default WordPress will use „Continue Reading…”. You can remove %linktext% and use your own text.

    I changed:
    %linktext% «%title%»

    VIEW FULL GALLERY «%title%»

    but it doesn’t work.

  10. Hey there,

    i just sent you an email with my problem but maybe others may experience the same. My permalink structure is (and should stay) thisismysite/YYYY/MM/name-of-article. When going to my site with the startup blog roll, the title link and the „read more” link work perfectly.

    But when I go to a category and want WP to show the posts from this category, it shows me the previews… and the title link works good, but the „read more” link just ignores the YYYY and MM part. And of course this leads to a 404 page. :(

    Any idea how to fix it?

  11. Seems it doesn’t work with custom permalink structure anymore. or ex. /%category%/%postname%.html is shown as /%category%/%postname%/ if clicked on more tag…
