This idea is coming from a person who only knows how to spell “PHP” so forgive my technical ignorance on the potential complexity of this idea.
Some have mentioned that they don’t like the way the
< !--more-- >tag takes you to the new page, and does not show the preceeding text. The problem with that, as I see it, is that it forces your reader to scan the text again to figure out where she left off. That being said, I don’t really like the preceeding text being cut off, either.
So I had an idea. What if the the tag DID take you to the start of the text, but all of the text that you read in the post was styled visually to separate it from the remainder of the post. For example, if your text was black, you could have the “already-read” text in a shade of gray–still legible, but it would look different than the rest of the text and it would be easy to find where to continue from. You could also italicise it, or change the font or size or whatever combination you like, as that text would be wrapped, say, in a class which could easily be defined in your CSS file.
Discuss, debate, refine please! 🙂
