    How do you set up a read more for wordpress?

    example: my article is 19 paragraphs long, how do i make only the first paragraph show, and then a [more...] item that the user cicks to take them to the full article?

    Welcome to the forums. We ask all to use the "search first" function before atarting a new thread, both to save you time and us the time and trouble of having to retype the same answers ad nauseam.

    This is an especially old and oft asked question. There are lots of threads on using excerpts (the_excerpt) vs. the content (the_content) and the "more" quicktag (<!--more-->).

    Is it possible to do so for WordPress.com?

    Since it isn't possible to edit the templates.... no.... and yes.... if you use the <!--more--> tag, then it should "just work"....

    it doesnt seem to be working.

    also, wordpress.com, offers the "more" button in thier WYSIWYG editor.

    Any clues?
