The "More" tag, I'm still confused.

    I’ve been trying to simply insert the more tag into several places in a very looooong “gallery” kind of post that needs breaking up. Is that the correct way to do this, or not? I read that the tag doesn’t work unless we actually publish a post. I did that, but it still doesn’t work for me. Should I even be using More or should I just break the collection into several posts and then link them together?

    The blog I need help with is honeybunch55.wordpress.com.

    No. We insert “the more tag” only once into a post. To do what you want to do in a long post we use pagination (next page) or page jump links Please see here > http://support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/nextpage/

    Looks like a “next page” link would be exactly what I need :-) Page jumping would still require my long post to load, and for anyone on dialup (there surely must be a handful of others out there!), that would take eons…

    Thanks so much for a tip on something I never knew there was a tag for!

    Yeah, the more tag is a one time only insert whereas the next page tag can be used multiple times and each insertion creates a new page.

    Thanks again….as I have said more than once, I am still learning! – LOLROTF

    The next page tag is lovely, it works a treat! Suddenly I feel so professional…..ummmm
