I'm a new WP author using the basic free pkg. I've spent some time this afternoon to understand what I think can happen based on what I've read in the Docs in the author section.
I'm aware the more tag is handy for determining my excerpt for posts that will go to their own permalink page. But I've written a page that is more long form, and the first 55 characters, or less are not what I want on the home page. I've written a shorter teaser as a post.
The dashboard page for this new post shows a separate text input area underneath when I click the more tag button in the kitchen sink. When I post the permalink of the static page in it and preview, it shows the text of the permalink. I see a path :P in an uneditable area so I've not read what that does. What is that area for? If it's for the continuation of the post that "jumps", why does it preview in my home page?
So, am I thinking about it wrong? I want to click on the post and go to this static page that I made beforehand.
I have not seen how to do this, thanx, sam
The blog I need help with is onewithjesus.wordpress.com.
