Read More Now Available in Blogger Blogger’s Birthday has some very special gifts for Bloggers now. The “Read More” or say “Continue Reading” feature was really most requested and awaited feature of Bloggers. Many had applied this hack in their blog going through the entire long html editing process which was really complicated. Now Blogger as a part of its Blogger’s 10th happy birthday feature has announced the “Read more” feature with just simple steps, which it preferably calls the “Jump Breaks”. With this, you can now easily have the summary of the post with the “Read More” feature in your blog index pages.

You can activate this feature in couple of ways. If you have made “Blogger in Draft your default dashboard or just use it, you’ll see the “Insert jump break” icon in the editor’s toolbar. Alternatively you can also activate it from the Settings tab (Basic) of your respective Blog’s dashboard. See the Image below to get the idea of using the “Jump Break”.

One more thing, if you still find the old editor comfortable like I do, you can still use this feature. All you need to do is just add the code manually. In your “EDIT HTML” section of creating post, add the code <!– more –> where you want to use the Jump Break feature.

The default code will enable you to have the summary of the post with the “Read More >>” title at the break. If you need to change this to something else you can do it by editing the “Read more” text by clicking Layout and then Edit the Blog Posts widget.
