How to Create Read More

September 04, 2008

If you want to read an article or post at your favourite blog, you must be see "read more". This function to separate the articles so it just shown the headlines of the articles. How to create this its very simple, what you is..

1. Login to your blogger
2. Choose Layout ---> Edit HTML
3. I advise you to backup first yout template by clicking Download Template
4. Then cheklist Expand Template Widget
5. Find this code "</head>", then copy and paste above "</head>"
<script src=''

6. Then find this code "<div class="post-header-line-1">"
7. After that, below that code, there is code like this "<div class='post-body entry-content'>"
8. Change the code to be like this
<div class='post-header-line-1'/>
<div class='post-body entry-content' expr:id='"post-" +'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<style>#fullpost {display:none;}</style>
<span id='showlink'>
<p><a expr:onclick='"javascript:showFull(\"post-" + + "\");"' href='javascript:void(0);'>[+] Read More...</a></p>
<span id='hidelink' style='display:none'>
<p><a expr:onclick='"javascript:hideFull(\"post-" + + "\");"' href='javascript:void(0);'>[-] Resume...</a></p>
<script type='text/javascript'>checkFull("post-" + "<>")</script>

9. "Read More" and "Resume" text can be change what ever you want
10. Then Save Template
11. Choose Setting menu ---> Formating
12. At the bottom, find "Post Template", then fill this code at the box
<span id="fullpost">


13. Finish...
14. How it work is.. put the headline articles above <span id="fullpost">
then the main content is between <span id="fullpost"> and </span>
15. Have a nice try...^^
