    Right now on my blog http://www.crankypot.com i have excerpts (summarised articles). As you will se at the end of each summary there is a [...]
    I would like it to be read more... or something like that. I think i have to modify my post.php but i am not coder so any help will be appreciated.

    This is my post.php
    <!--"by:<?php the_author(); ?>--><div class="post">
    <h2 id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent link to <?php the_title();?>"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <small>Posted in <?php the_category(', '); ?> on <?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?>
    by <?php the_author(); ?></small>
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_excerpt('Read the rest of this entry »'); ?></div>

    <p class="postmetadata"><?php edit_post_link('Edit','','|'); ?><?php comments_popup_link(' Leave A Comment »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?>
    <?php trackback_rdf(); ?>
    </div>

    While posting when you feel to spilt the post just use Alt-T to split the post. More tag will get activated. No need to edit post.php file for that. you can see More button while posting also! use that or press Alt-T.

    Thanks for the reply. That worked.
    My main concern is that contributors will not know to do that, so i thought just modifying post.php to automaticaly do that would be a way to go, but if there is not way to do that thats fine. I can go end edit posts manualy.

    Thanks
