Add the right Tag and save Space
When browsing the blogs of some of my fellow bloggers, I see now and then blog homepages with large and extended posts. Actually the whole blog post appears on the very first page, followed by the similar extended previous blog posts.
When the blogger allows the last 10 posts on the 1st page it makes a long way to scroll down to reach the bottom of the page.
But there is light at the end of the tunnel!
The wonderful programmers of WordPress – and I bet those of other blogging software too – have thought about it and added an option to the format tags to reduce the posts on the homepage.
You will find it right in the first formatting line when running the blog entry in visual mode.
Just put your cursor at the end of the 5th or 6th line of your post and click on it.
Two tiny lines with a little blue square appear underneath your cursor position.
This is the “Read more” tag.
When running the post entry in html it will look this way:
You see the more-tag right in the middle of the formatting palette.
How does the post look like?
Just have a look at my latest blog entries on the very first page of my blog.
See nice and neatly shorten for the first page.
Very reader friendly. Not much to scroll down.
Just click on “Read more” and it will jump to the permalink page of the blog entry!
Another way to make the blog easier to handle for our readers.
