Hi I have this code that show the latest post on inside a small div on a home page but I wanted to add the more(<!--more-->)on the text editor but is not working, I have tried to change he sintax bellow with a the_excerpt but that stops the code bellow from displaying the latest post. can someone help me out please I want the post to display some content on the homepage and click more to take you to the post itself.

Thanks in adavance.
PHP Code:
<?php


    
function wptuts_recentpost($atts$content=null){  
      global 
$more;    // Declare global $more (before the loop).
  
$more 0;       // Set (inside the loop) to display content above the more tag.
      
        
$getpost get_posts( array('number' => 1) );  
      
        
$getpost $getpost[0];  
      
        
$return $getpost->post_title "<br />" $getpost->post_content "";  
            
        return 
$return;  
      
    }
