How to Create "Read More" in New Blogger Template

I got this trik from Isnaini. Isnaini said he got the trik from blogger help site, How can I create expandable post summaries?. But he said you may not tried exactly based on that because he already tried several times but fail, mostly in style/css.

From his site he explain as below:

  • Login to blogger.com, choose which blogger you want to edit, click Layout then go to edit HTML.

  • Before do some edit to HTML backup your complete HTML. (You may find the link after you click Edit HTML as describe above)

  • To get your HTML can be edited as a whole; you have to activate the Expand Widget Templates.

  • Insert below codes before tag </head> and/or after code } ]]></b:skin>

    <style>
    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
    span.fullpost {display:inline;}
    <b:else/>
    span.fullpost {display:none;}
    </b:if>
    </style>


  • To arrange the posting, find codes <p><data:post.body/></p> in your template. Add below codes after that code:

    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
    <a expr:href='data:post.url'> Read More..</a>
    </b:if>


  • Yeah… . You almost done! To get this code work, in your actual post insert <span class="fullpost">. And at the end of your post add code </span>.

    Example:
    Ini adalah awal berita yang ingin saya potong karena terlalu panjang kalo postingan muncul semua, oleh karena itu saya perlu memotong berita sampai disini saja. <span class="fullpost"> Dan ini adalah sisa postingan saya yang akan saya sembunyikan dan hanya muncul pada saat post page atau link read more.. diklik </span>

    Result:
    Ini adalah awal berita yang ingin saya potong karena terlalu panjang kalo postingan muncul semua, oleh karena itu saya perlu memotong berita sampai disini saja. Read More ...


  • Good Luck Buddy
