I am using the Siren Template. In homepage.php this code is used to display the portfolio content
But I to need show the content only before
I have used this:
the_content( $more_link_text, FALSE);
but it is not working. It shows all the content
Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.
You can use the WordPress function
get_extended to fetch the different parts of a string (the part before and the part after the
get_extended returns an array with three keys, of which the keys
extended are important:
$arr['main'] contains the part before the more tag, and
$arr['extended'] the part after the more tag.
This would yield something like:
// Fetch post content $content = get_post_field( 'post_content', get_the_ID() ); // Get content parts $content_parts = get_extended( $content ); // Output part before <!--more--> tag echo $content_parts['main'];
Unfortunally it seems like all functions in WordPress that are supposed to render the excerpt (
get_extended) don’t apply HTML tags nor convert carriage returns in paragraphs as aspected.
If you need to render the excerpt with formatting, I suggest that you use this code:
global $more; $more_backup = $more; $more = 0; the_content(''); $more = $more_backup;
With this work-around you are telling to the_content() function that it is inside a loop, getting the content before the more tag.
