Using The More Button To Add A Read More
Last Update: Mar 5, 2014
When I started my second site I wanted to use a different theme then my first. I spent a lot of time combing through the plethora of them available looking for one that met my criteria. Finally I had one that worked the way I wanted, that is until I published my first post...
There on my home page blog roll was the entire post start to end. The one thing I did not like about this is that it basically just cut off the comments section. We strive to make our sites engaging and I wanted the comment section to be a part of the post experience.
Even though I thought I could change an option within the theme to show a summary on my home page, it did not work. Then the great community here came to my aid and taught me about the "more" button that would do just what I wanted.

Then just click on the "more" button.
One you do that you will see the following HTML code inserted into your post:
Now when you switch back to the Visual Tab is should look like this:
And when you publish the post it will show up on your Blog Roll like this:
Hope this can avoid some of the frustrations I went through trying to figure this out. If you still have any questions please feel free to ask!
Keep Working It!
