    Hello,

    I use wordpress with Sparkling theme, and, on my homepage, I would like to display only excerpts of the articles with a clickable "Read more" ...

    I have searched with Google :
    1) I have used the "Read More" tag in my articles: there are only excerpts on the homepage, BUT I haven't a clickable "Read more" in the article. People need to click on the title of the article.

    2) I have tried to modify css file, index and content, and I have various results (nothing happens or all my articles disappear), but not what I want.

    I have read that with some themes, you can't use excerpts on homepage.

    Do you know if that's the case with Sparkling?

    Thanks

    Use the livecomposer plugin instead. You can customize the excerpts portion to your liking.
