'Read more...' breaks allow you to save space on the Front Page or on any blog layout page by showing just the first portion of an Article. 'Pagebreaks' allow you to provide multi-page navigation for long Articles. You can use both on one Article, if desired. For example, you could put a 'Read more...' break after the first paragraph of a multi-page article, and have Pagebreaks after each page. No page navigation would display on the Front Page until the User selects the 'Read more...' link. At that time, the Article's table of contents would display showing links to every page.</translate>

Quick Tips[edit]

  • There are 2 methods to insert an image into article using the TinyMCE editor.
    1. The CMS Content dropdown list provides access to the Media screen that lets you browse image files and upload images.
    2. The 'Insert' dropdown list is a simple form for which you need to know the image url. It is used for external images.
  • Read more breaks allow you to save space on the Front Page or on any blog layout page by showing just the first portion of an Article. Page break allow you to provide multi-page navigation for long Articles. You can use both on one Article, if desired.
    For example, you could put a Read more break after the first paragraph of a multi-page article, and have Page breaks after each page. No page navigation would display on the Front Page until the User selects the Read more link. At that time, the Article's table of contents would display showing links to every page.
