    Hi, thank you for helping me out with my other issue and it looks great. I do have one other problem though. At the bottom of my page in the blog section, the “Ream More” button isn’t showing on a post. I’m guessing it is because I have it featured at the top, but I want it to display the “Read More” button as well at the bottom. Thanks for your help!

    Hello Mason,

    By default, the blog section of the Front Page section display excerpts. It never displays the full post content.

    Note, the maximum amount of words in the automatic excerpt is 20, meaning that WordPress does not display the link if the More tag or the More block is added before the excerpt takes effect.

    I’ve counted words in your post’s summary (“One of my former teachers at Trinity Academy, Mr. Horner, teaches philosophy senior year. One of the books we read in that class is Walker Percy’s The Moviegoer.“), and it is consisted of 28 words. So, the Read More link should be shown.

    Also,I’ve tested it on my sandbox site, and I am able to see the Read More button: https://snipboard.io/JzR3BT.jpg

    Are you using the More block (https://wordpress.com/support/wordpress-editor/blocks/more-block/) to create a summary, or the excerpt field (https://wordpress.com/support/excerpts/) ?

    Thank you,
    Taras
