Skill LevelEdit

You must be comfortable with editing CSS and your Blogger template.

DescriptionEdit

Use this hack to hide all post content behind a link. When the link is clicked, the user will be sent to the post page, where the entire text of the post will become visible. The "read more" link will only appear on posts which have text marked up in a specific way, e.g. between specific <span></span> tags.

Method Edit

See detailed instructions at the homepage, but in general:

  1. Enable Post Pages in your Blogger settings.
  2. Obtain code from the instructions.
  3. Insert some conditional tags surrounding styles into the stylesheet portion of your Blogger template.
  4. Insert JavaScript snippets into the body area of your Blogger template.
  5. Modify specific styles for links, if you wish.
  6. Re-publish your blog.
  7. Surround some text with a specific <span></span> tag pair when you have extended text to include in your post.
