Trying to create link from homepage posts

    Hi All,

    What I am wondering is if there is a way for me to create a link FROM the posts on my homepage to a second page that shows the text, the second/third/tenth photos etc. I don’t want the entire posts appearing on the homepage – just either an image or a shortened version of the overall post.

    I am currently using the ‘girl in green’ theme and want my posts to appear as similarly as possible to those posts using the ‘autofocus’ theme, without having to actually change themes.

    Any advice would be most appreciated!

    Thank you very much! :)

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

    Yes, and you will be amazed at how easy it is.

    Use the “more” tag: that’s the one that looks like a dotted line across a page in the Visual editor. I think it’s #13 across the top of the Write Post box. Just put the cursor where you want the break and click the icon.

    Thanks so much for your reply. I was thrilled to see that there is a tag for doing just this, so I tried it out both on an edit and on a new post, but it didn’t work on either one.

    Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? Or could this be a theme issue?

    Thanks again!

    And…while I’m thinking about it…is there a way to, in addition to the “read the rest of this entry”, have a reader click on the image that starts the post to go to the rest of the entry, or only by clicking on the text that says “read the rest of this entry”…

    Thank you :)

    As far as I’m aware, you can’t use an image. You must use text. But you can edit the text in the HTML editor.

    As for “it didn’t work” could you be more specific about the nature of the failure?

    Yes: you didn’t check the result on your homepage.
