Thank you SO much for this. I have been trying to find a way to add one of these links, for a couple of weeks. I'm not great with computers, so adding a bunch of codes was nearly impossible for me.

Thank you :D

Wonderful! I will definitely try this when I'm less tired.

Quick question, though: is there any way to automatically change all of my older posts to having the "read more" feature without having to change each individual post? I have about 150 posts and it would take forever to get them all changed. Thanks!

Right now there is no any way to do this. You have to do it manually.

Show only 2/3 posts on your homepage.

" it is going to be bigger and bigger, how could i replace each job to 3-4 lines and then read more link. "

Well there is no such facility in Blogger. I will suggest you to create separate posts and then link in

July 27, 2010 at 12:13 PM
