It is sometimes useful to enable the article to be read in full following a summary or a few 'taster' lines - with a Read More button after the first few lines. Sometimes a long article is split into pages. There are two features to do this in the editor:-
There are some pages where a short taster extract gives enough information for readers to be aware of the content of the article. If they wish to read more detail, they can choose to see the whole article. This is often used for news or blogs where there is limited room on the main page and readers are not interested in all content. A good solution is to use the Read More . . facility.
There is an icon called Read More underneath the Editor screen.
A dotted line is inserted into the article.
Only the taster text is displayed. At the end of it there is a READ MORE button.
It is sometimes useful to split a long article into shorter sections. This also creates a table of contents, with the entries being the Page Titles that you enter for each page. You do have to decide on how long each page is to be but the index includes an option to view the whole article, so a reader is not restricted to one page at the time. This can be a useful option for some articles.
There is an icon at the bottom of the Editor part of the editing page
A small dialogue box appears above the editor. The Page Title is likely to be the name of the heading or main content of the next part of the article. If you do not enter anything - this becomes the page number by default.
The breaks in the article are marked by a grey image across the screen
