Continue Reading link not showing

Issue #7 resolved

First, I think you did a fine job with the Elgee Elbee template.

I installed Elbee Elgee 1.3.7 and noticed that any posts that use "more" show the "Continue Reading" link only on the home page. The "Continue Reading" link does not appear for posts listed when clicking a category or a tag or from archives.

I noticed this on a rather large WordPress web site I'm working on. To make sure it was nothing else causing this, I created a brand new WordPress blog and the only thing I've done so far is to add the Elbee Elgee template and updated the Hello Word post to add the "more" and some additional text.

If this is "by design" (a Microsoft euphism for "oops"), could you tell me what I would need to add and where to get the "Continue Reading" link to appear on all lists.

Many Thanks!

    @bencharron: This behavior is due to the use of `the_excerpt()` in archive pages. I originally adopted this practice due to the possibility of Google penalizing my site for duplicate content, so this could loosely be described as "SEO". *grin*

    That being said, I'll take a look at it afresh and see if there's a way to do this that won't potentially harm your site's rankings. I'll also let you know if I come up with a short-term fix.

    Thanks for the report!
