"Continue Reading" Button

I have a blog set up on my site,  I use it to post a daily picture via email.  All the email contains is a subject and a picture. When I check the blog, The title is correct "the subject of the email" but the picture is not displayed,  you have to click on the "continue reading" button that is present.  I am using the Lyrical Theme.  I have tried other themes, but they do the same thing.  It looks like jetpack is controlling the blog.  


Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @flipperz ,


The problem is not with the theme, but with the way email-to-post works.  The short version is that these types of posts were really never intended to be media posts.  Basically, it's a convenience feature for popping up some quick text for an announcement.  What you do, is exactly the way it works.   


In place of email-to-post, I use the wordpress app with it configured to access "self-hosted" sites.  It takes just a bit longer than an email, but no worries with media and formatting.  The app has gotten better over time. 


One more alternative is perhaps create a Zap (Zapier).  This is a bit more complicated, but Zapier is great for time-saving automation.


Hope this helps,

Thank you for the information. I will mess around with Zapier.
