Please excuse what seems to be my thick headedness long enough to offer any help you might be able to share regarding my 'More Tag' conundrum... here goes:
When writing a legnthy entry I quite enjoy having the option to use the 'More' or Alt-T tag to split the bugger in two, however, I have to wonder if indeed I am using it correctly.
For example, using the following link to my WP blog homepage one can see I have inserted the More tag towards the end of each entry: http://gogblog.wordpress.com/
Thing is, when one clicks the link to read the entire post instead of showing the full entry, the page is scrolled down to where the tag originally appears on the homepage. Kinda like this: http://gogblog.wordpress.com/2006/01/17/sarin-happy-guru-totally-whacked/#more-14
Now to my main question...
-> Is it possible to use the More tag but somehow train it to re-load the entire blog entry in the same manner the headline link does? Sorta like this: http://gogblog.wordpress.com/2006/01/17/sarin-happy-guru-totally-whacked/
Related Bummers For Me:
When writing the entry using the WP Admin editor and the More tag is inserted, one might expect a single marker to appear pre-loaded with the proper link - but in fact two seperate markers are generated. Tried to place one at the begining of the entry and one where I want the spilt, but that don't work - just removes all entry text from blog home and leavs only headline and read entire post link.
1) Why do 2 markers appear and how am I missing the point on where to place them?
2) Each marker can be expanded, shrunk, transmogrified and reset to its original dimensions. Seems to beg for text to be insterted inside once the markier has been big-ified, but darned if I can jam anything in there. Am I on all sorts of Stoopid Drugs again?!
3) Thought I might be able to work around my woes by inserting the More tag, deleting the top most marker and then use the HTML editor to modify said markers. Wanted to change markers link to read "htt.....totally-whacked/" not "htt.....totally-whacked/#more-14" but no! don't seem to be any way to get this done neither. See, the More tag appears in HTML editor as "<!--more-->" with no apparent method of making above mentioned change.
OK - this is entirely too long and convolute, so I will wrap things up. Figure my chances of this post making a lick of sense are about even. Bet there is some really, stuptifyingly simple solution to my question regarding the More tag that has been right in front of me as I sit here overthinking things till they've lost all meaning.
If that is true, can someone please circle it with a bright red marker and pin it to my shirt before I get even loster?
