    How can you force posts to show only the first two lines of text, followed by a more>> type of link. This allows more posts per page.

    In the admin panel on Write Posts page above the text area there is a <more> quicktag. Insert it wherever you want your posts to "break".

    Good starter reading:

    and see the Posting in WordPress section.

    Oh, I get it. You insert the more tag where the post is supposed to break.

    I got the answer to posting with more tags over here:

  4. If you want to do this automatically, here are two plugins that may help (only use one):
