Latest Post Block’s “Continue Reading” Links are Broken

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new page on WP.com
  2. Add the Latest Post Block to your page
  3. Enable content to show with just excerpts showing
  4. Publish the page
  5. View the page and you’ll see “Continue Reading” links that, when clicked on, simply reload the page rather than the post.

What I expected

To be taken to the post when I click on “Continue Reading”

What happened instead

Example of problem here: https://testingannezazu.wordpress.com/ You’ll see that the Blog Post block works just fine whereas the Latest Post Block’s links don’t.

Important note

When viewing the block in the editor, you see a “Read More” link that correctly includes the URL. When viewing the page though, you see “Continue Reading” which is broken.

  1. This should be fixed for all WordPress.com sites with Gutenberg 8 deployed everywhere.
