WP plugin: More Unique
Forgive the misuse of an absolute in the name: More Unique is a simple WordPress plugin with a simple task: to let you customize, individualize, alterize (word?) the text of the ‘more’ link for each post through the use of custom fields.
If you’re not aware of the feature, in WordPress you can add a break to posts by inserting the
<!--more--> quicktag in the content. When a post with this quicktag appears on your blog (anywhere other than on a single post/permalink page), a link encouraging one to read further appears and the remainder of the post—any text after
<!--more--> in your post—is not displayed*.
To install the plugin download more-unique.php, then upload it to the wp-content/plugins/ directory in your WordPress installation and activate More Unique under Plugins. To use, add a new custom field to any post with a key of 'more' (without the quotes) and a value that will be your custom more link text. Then click Add Custom Field. To edit your ‘more’ link text change the value for it under Custom Fields and click Update. To remove it and return to the default ‘more’ link text, delete the custom field.
* The more quicktag works only in conjunction with the_content() template tag in your theme templates. You can read about the_content() and the more quicktag on the WordPress Codex:
$default, will replace WordPress’ default ‘more’ link text (to change in your feeds, etc). Also, you can now use
%title%(in both the ‘more’ custom field and the
$defaultvariable value) to auto-insert the post’s title in your ‘more’ link text.
%nomore%(and nothing else) for your ‘more’ custom field value, this will remove the ‘more’ link for that post. Added tentative support for WordPress 2.1.
