    Is there a way to limit a post's size (in words) and then have a link to say "more..." or something to that effect. I was just finding if there was any plugin or any solution like that. I am using WordPress 1.5.2. I am a newbie of playing with php code, so I am not good at adding plugins. How cam I add a plugin or do a solution of limiting a post's size.
    Thanks.

    How about hitting that little button above your write post text box that says "More" Then continue writing after the tag that is entered.

    that's a possible plugin

    Alternatively, you can change your template to use excerpts. I think the codex would say it a lot better then i do

    Where should I put the code in?
    The code :
    <?php if(is_category() || is_archive()) {
    the_excerpt();
    } else {
    the_content();
    } ?>
