Because โ€œread moreโ€ isn’t good enough

Turn your โ€œMoreโ€ links into a bespoke call-to-action for each post. Rather than have โ€œRead moreโ€ or โ€œ[…]โ€ after your excerpt, you could have โ€œSee Bob’s garden up closeโ€ in a post about a beautiful garden, or โ€œTry our tasty sauceโ€ in a bolognese sauce recipe.


  • For example, here’s a post about interior design, the more link reads โ€œSee our top tips for cosificationโ€
  • You configure the โ€œmoreโ€ text in the post editing screen, above the โ€œPublishโ€ or โ€œUpdateโ€ button.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/actionpress directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the โ€˜Pluginsโ€™ screen in WordPress


  1. Create a new post, or edit an existing post
  2. You’ll see a new meta-box above the Update or Publish button that says Post Action
  3. Enter your call-to-action for this post and press the Update or Publish button to save changes.

Any posts with no call-to-action text defined will have a read more link that simply says โ€œRead moreโ€. But you don’t want that!


How can I customise the style of the ActionPress more link?

If you want to customise the style of your ActionPress more link, simply target the .actionpress_more class.

The default styling is simple:

    margin:10px auto;
I have installed and activated the plugin, but I’m still seeing the normal WordPress โ€˜moreโ€™ link – what’s wrong?

By default, ActionPress has a priority of 20. This means that it applies its changes to the more link after all other changes (up to 19). It discards the previous more link entirely, therefore any changes up to 19th in the queue will be discarded. If your theme, or another plugin uses a higher priority than 20, then ActionPress may be over-ruled by that theme or plugin.
If you want to filter the ActionPress text, make the filter priority in your theme > 20.
