WordPress Tip: Use the More Tag

Cary, NC – Here’s a handy tip that will help you keep your blog clean and easy to read: Use the More Tag.

What is the More Tag?

The More tag divides your post into two parts – an intro and the rest of the story.

When you use the More tag, only the first part shows up on the home page of the blog, along with a link to “Continue Reading.”

This puts more stories on the Home Page with a lot less scrolling, making it easier for visitors to scan the content.

Using the More Tag

Using the More Tag is simple:

  1. Position your cursor where you want the break to occur
  2. Hit the More Tag button in the toolbar

That’s it! A little line appears in your post that reads “More…”


For you code geeks, enter <!–more–> in html view.
