    Wade,

    Thank you for this suggestion to "make sure you're in HTML view". And for providing the <!--more--> tag.

    I have only tried to use the "more" once, was not successful and didn't try to figure out why it didn't work.

    Now, I know what to do.

    Hi Regina
    Ok - where is it that you're wanting to use the More tag? This theme utilizes essentially the more tag already on the index page by having the boxes and areas where only snippets of posts are shown, you read then click through to read the whole post on the page.

    So if you're already on a post page, reading the rest of it from the snippet off the main index page, then this is not an instance where you'd went to use the More tag.

    If you think you're posts are too lengthy, I would split them into two parts and have a part 1 and a part 2 and post the second part the next day or the next week or something.

    In my opinion, having one blog post that goes one for two pages in one sitting is too long.

    Split it up into two blog posts - build the suspense, drama, draw the reader back to your site again.

    Did I understand what you were wanting to do correctly? If not, please clarify and I'll try to help you.

    Now that makes PERFECT sense to me because that's exactly what it is. It's a post page on the index that leads into the post itself so why would it break again? DUH! (thanks Traci)

    It's not one of those post that you schedule part 1 now and part 2 later -- however, I now know exactly what to do with it.

    Thanks for letting me know - I thought something was wrong with the template, LOL!
