How to put 'More' Tag in a Word Press Powered Blog Post

Unlike Blogspot, Wordpress gives you a nifty way to show a excerpt of you story on the home page. This is very useful when you would want to show multiple stories on the home page, trying to accommodate as many above the fold.

Here's a quick primer on how to do this.

There are two modes in the edtior viz. Visual and 'HTML Code'.

If you are in visual code, then click this button, look at illustration, to insert a 'break point'. This would ensure that wherever multiple stories are displayed, only the part which is before break-point would be shown.

Same thing can be achieved by clicking [more] button if you are in 'HTML Code'.

Hope this is useful for fellow bloggers.
