A simple plugin that allows you to modify the link that is displayed when you use the <!–more–> feature. Also lets you remove the anchor link to turn off the jumping behaviour. You can also choose to have the more link open in a new window/tab.
You can choose to have just plain text, or also include the post’s title. If you chose to include the title, you can limit the number of characters/words that are displayed in the title. Also allows you to add ellipsis (…) to the title if it has been truncated. All the options can be found in “More Link” tab under “Options” in admin page.
- Create a directory ‘more-link-modifier’ in the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
- Upload ‘more-link.php’ and ‘more-link-options.php’ into the newly created ‘more-link-modifier’ directory
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Can I include HTML in the ‘Custom Link Text’?
Yes, but only the most basic HTML. The HTML tags that are allowed are:
<img>, <b>, <strong>, <i>, <em> and <u>

- I entered something in the ‘Custom Link Text’ field and things have stuffed up. What should I do?
Click on the ‘Reset to WordPress default values’ button and stop trying to break the plugin! (j/k – if you remember what you entered, please email me and I’ll see if I can fix it)
