I’m using two Latest New Widgets on my home page. Inside the posts, I have an entry (summary) paragraph, followed by a Read More text break, then the rest of the post. I would expect on the widget, it would only shop up until the “read more break”, but it continues into the main post text.
The latest news widget provided by the theme has an option to individually control the excerpt length in the posts by providing the no. of words displayed in the widget settings and thus it ignores the more link added from the post editor.
However, if you wish to display the read more text only upto the more link in the editor, you can achieve the request with some code modifications. For this you will need to create a child theme.
For reference on child theme creation, you can see the links below :
