How to collapse blogs (5 posts)

    I'm very new to WordPress and have a problem: Every time I post a blog, the entire text is displayed on the main page. I would like there to be a leader and then the option to click and read on, as I have seen on the other sites. How did this happen and how do I fix it?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    You should use the following tag in your blog post :

    <!--more-->

    This will display the content before that tag on the main page, and when the user clicks on the More link it will open the full content of the post in its own page.

    Regards,

    Stefaan

    I think this can be marked as resolved.

    Thanks so much - so simple, yet elusive to find.

    Another question: I basically pasted <!--more--> into the blog, but how can I select a certain sentence to be displayed if it is not the first sentence of the post?

    Thank you again!
