    Is it possible to cut off the write-ups on the staff members at a certain point so as to be continued on the full individual staff pages? Example…

    <PICTURE> Next to the pictures Write-up blah blah blah…”read more” (link to full profile).

    Hi William,

    Good question. The staff listings use WordPress’s excerpt function. If content is entered into the excerpt box when you’re editing a staff member it will be displayed on the listing page, otherwise the first 55 words of the main content will be displayed.

    So to have a small portion displayed that’s different from the beginning of the post, you can enter it into the excerpt box.

    If you’d like to add in a read more link you can. Here’s how to do that:

    1. Go to the Appearance section in your WordPress dashboard and choose Edit.
    2. From the list of files on your right, choose staff-entry.php
    3. Replace all the content there with this:


      (Visit the support site to see the code).

    4. Save your changes.

    That should add in a read more link after the excerpt. If you have any trouble, let me know.

    Thanks,
    Bill
