By placing the “more tag” after the second para the index page will only display to that point and the “read more” link. When hitting that link a reader is then taken to the full entry. The theme you are using just happens to show read more whether you use the tag or not.

Other than that, they’re more or less interchangeable. Author Posts The topic ‘how do “text-cut”’ is closed to new replies.
