I have looked through every setting and cannot find if and where I can change this. Can anyone help?

You can read all about how it works and how to use it here. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/ Cheers, -Scott August 3, 2010 at 9:41 pm #504952 manojbeMember @sharky30: You can also make use of excerpts. When creating a post, type in a few lines (a teaser, perhaps?) into the excerpt field. Then in wp-admin, goto: Settings -> Reading Settings and change “For each article in a feed, show” to “Summary” Now all your posts show excerpts instead of the full text. :-) Regards, Sterex August 3, 2010 at 11:52 pm #504972 panaghiotisadamMember @sterex: a) Only a few themes support excerpts on the blog front – see here: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/the-excerpt-function/ b) That option in Settings>Reading has nothing to do with the actual blog page.
