How wordpress more link can navigate to top of the full article window?

By default, when you click on the Read More link, the web page loads and then “jumps” to the spot where the <–more–> tag is set in the post. If you do not want that “jump”, you can use this code in your theme’s functions.php:

function remove_more_jump_link($link) {
$offset = strpos($link, '#more-');
if ($offset) {
$end = strpos($link, '"',$offset);
if ($end) {
$link = substr_replace($link, '', $offset, $end-$offset);
return $link;
add_filter('the_content_more_link', 'remove_more_jump_link');

Easy answer for most installations:

  • If database and URL remains the same, you can move by just copying your files and database.
  • If database name or user changes, edit wp-config.php to have the correct values.
  • If you want to test before you switch, you must temporarily change “siteurl” and “home” in the database table “wp_options” (through phpMyAdmin or similar).
    If you had any kind of rewrites (permalinks) setup you must disable .htaccess and reconfigure permalinks when it goes live.
