If you use Blogger to publish your rants and raves, you may be thrilled to find out they can now easily implement "Read more" links on their blog's index page. In fact, for years bloggers have been implementing "Read more" jump breaks themselves through manually edited HTML....a process that scares the poop out of me!
Alas Blogger has introduced Jump Breaks! Yippeeee right! With Jump Breaks you can show just a sentence or two of your post on your blog's index page. Blogger will insert a "Read more" link to the full post page where your readers can keep reading. Marvelous! It should look something like this:
Immediately I went and tried to edit all of my posts so that I could add a jump break and clean up the appearance of my home page. Not! It seems easy enough. All you have to do is while writing your post choose a point where you would like to break off and add the read more link. Click on that wee button near t he top that looks like torn paper and viola, a break is added. All you do is continue with your post.
So I tried this a million times and not once did the Read More>>> link show up. All that I saw was the grey break line it added then my continued submission right under neath. No amount of searching for a resolution to this problem has come up with anything. This should not be an issue as I am using one of Bloggers basic templates Minima Stretch .
If some poor soul out there reads this entry, please take pitty on me and help this html-o-phobe out with this please. Just leave a comment, I don't care if I sound daft for missing something....I already know I'm daft!
