I’ve tried several different themes, same result. Please advise … — MS June 21, 2006 at 1:48 am #18159 sdraneMember WWbtest: When you post using the Visual Rich Editor, there is a button that enables you to split your post. If you hover your mouse over it, it should say “Split post with More tag”. Just go to the point where you wish to split the post and press this button. Then save your post. When you view your blog, it will show you only the text which precedes the More tag.

There are a few themes out there that will display what’s in the summary field on your blogs home and search pages. Podz mentions the ‘more’ button as being button #13 in this FAQ.
