    Is there a tag or something i can use in my posts so that I can restrict the text shown on the post overview.

    For example, on my Recipes page – the post ‘Easy Home Made Hot Tomato Soup’, i would like only the first line of text to show before the Read More button, but on other posts i will require longer/ shorter sentences.

    I hope I have explained this well.

    You can use the <!--more--> tag.

    When I use that tag, it removes the Read More button from the post overview as you can see on the Fajitas post on my Recipes page

    Oh, in that case you need to use the Custom Excerpt feature to control the text. The <!--more--> tag is for the normal, full-content blog-layout listing.

    In the Edit Post screen, near the upper right corner, click on the Screen Options pulldown tab and make sure you tick “Excerpt”. Then an “Excerpt” box will have been added to the page, under the “Graphene post-specific options” box. Enter the custom excerpt you want to be displayed in that box.

    Thanks Syahir.

    I did that on the post ‘Easy Home Made Hot Tomato Soup’, but I am still missing the Continue Reading button.
