I put a WordPress “read more” tag in some page content (Sample Page).
I used the Genesis Featured Page widget in the Footer 1 area and put “Hey, there is more…” as the tag in the widget. I did NOT set a content count limit.
The “read more” worked great on the homepage: http://newmediawebsitedesign.com/wp2
It does not work on the actual page: http://newmediawebsitedesign.com/wp2/sample-page/
Bug in Genesis?April 20, 2013 at 1:19 pm #4045EricCustomer
Never seen that happen before. Are you using any other plugins that show different content on different pages? If not, try setting a content limit.
If that doesn’t work, and you’ve tried all of the settings in the widget then it very well could be a bug in Genesis since I know the Child theme wouldn’t be able to affect its functions.

I tried it with a different page. Same thing.
However, when I put in the character content limit of 50 it worked fine on home and on the test page.
The read-more works fine on home page footer but not a content page.
No, I don’t have any plugins active except Gen Responsive Slider.
When I get a chance I’ll try it with a different theme… but like you say I don’t see how a child theme could be at fault unless you have some special code in functions.php or home.php that messes with the footer? I looked and didn’t see anything.
All in all, not a big deal… it just surprises me. I left a post on the StudioPress site about it and maybe someone will explain it.
Have you been able to replicate it with Optimal?April 20, 2013 at 8:29 pm #4049scoobyCustomer
I just tested this on a local install with the latest Optimal version, but it seems to be working fine for me. If it comes up I’ll post here to let everyone know.April 20, 2013 at 10:08 pm #4054
I tried it with both Legacy and Agency and got the same results as with Optimal. I put in a support ticket and Studio Press said:
This is actually a limitation of the WordPress more tag. The WordPress more tag is specifically designed not to work on single posts or pages (inner) pages.
The widget will recognize the more tag but, since the tag is a WordPress function, WordPress controls its behavior. The default behavior is that it will not work on single posts or pages. This, of course, is its base functionality since hiding the content on the single post would prevent the content from ever being seen.
Of course, this is a Feathered Page widget in a footer area and it seems strange to me that there would be a difference in the code that is executed for the footer on a homepage vs. an interior page.
It’s not really important to me… I was just playing around to see how things work in Genesis (new to this platform…. been using Elegant Themes and are not happy with them so we are abandoning that company for Gen.April 20, 2013 at 11:01 pm #4055EricCustomer
Wow, I never knew that. I’ll keep this in mind in case I run across this issue. Thanks for letting me know.
If you ever need to find a workaround just let us know and we’ll see if we can come up with something. At worst, we could probably just manually add the Text with a “Read More” button.
