With help from the peerless Wade Kwon, I now know how to make a single blog post take up less space on the home page. (In newspaper terms, I know how to jump the story to an inside page.)
Hopefully that will make it less time-consuming to scan this blog’s home page for something worth reading.
For those who do WordPress blogs: I assumed that the “more” button on the editor toolbar simply added more buttons to the toolbar. I type in most of the tags anyway, so never felt the need to mash that “more” button.
That’s what I get for assuming. Actually the “more” button inserts the comment
<--more-->, which tells WordPress server-side software to chop the text at that point and create a “(more)” link.
This is why Wade is the one who runs a blogging school and teaches stuff like this.
