It’s great that the level of activity here has increased recently but I think it’s highlighted the need for a little bit of posting discipline (Postman Pat in leathers?! – Ed).
Can we restrict the amount of a post that appears on this Spill Home page, to make it easier and faster to scroll up and down? The Guardian blogs, for example, keep everything but the title, one picture/video/playlist and a couple of paragraphs of text hidden after a ‘continue reading…’ link. Can we follow suit, please?
To make this happen, all that is required is that, when creating a new post, you use the ‘Insert More Tag’ button after a bit of blurb and an image/video/playlist. The button is circled below (although the top and bottom lines are thicker and blacker nowadays):
On a PC, Alt+Shift+T has the same effect.
When the post appears, a Continue Reading tag is inserted and everything after that point moves to a second page.
Obviously, many people already do this. I think it would be a good idea for all of us to do it. I don’t actually have any more to say. But I thought a post about Continue Reading tags ought to actually have one……
