Blogger Tips and Tricks

Change Blogger jump break read more text

Posted: 21 May 2012 02:54 AM PDT

Blogger has already for a long time enabled bloggers to easily create expandable post summary which they called JUMP BREAK and where the jump break start will be a link with text READ MORE.

However, some bloggers may want to change that READ MORE text to something else, for example, change it to CONTINUE READING as had been done for this test post Testing Blogger jump break where the text had been successfully changed to CONTINUE READING.

This is how it can be done. Sign into Dashboard and in the drop down menu, click TEMPLATE, the EDIT HTML to open the template editor. Tick the [ ] Expand Widget Templates and using ctrl+F, find as shown highlighted in red below:

<a expr:href='data:post.url + "#more"' expr:title='data:post.title'><data:post.jumpText/></a>

Just replace <data:post.jumpText/> with whatever you like as for example to "Continue reading" so that the above line will be changed to

<a expr:href='data:post.url + "#more"' expr:title='data:post.title'>Continue reading</a>

Note: Whenever you want to edit the template, it is always wise to backup the template first before proceeding.
