I have watched this video and it does not work the way the video shows. When I copy the excerpt in the Excerpt section nothing happens and when I try the more a box comes up and the curser turn into the four arrows and cannot do anything with it. How can I fix this?

Hi! I’m having the same trouble that miamicomplaints is having. I can’t cut the links where I want to with the more button like the video showed. When I put in the insert more tag, it just doesn’t do anything to the blog I posted. It doesn’t cut the part separated.

An idea I definitely am going to pursue.

Great feature! I think it would be even greater if you could make the More tag work like the Excerpt feature; in other words, when you click More, only the part of the post following the tag appears. Is this possible?

I don’t know exactly what I have to do after click the “Insert More Tag” button.

Is there any way I can use the exerpt on OTHER pages that I insert or is this just for the Home/front page? Is there anyway I can use the exerpt on other pages?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this. I searched around for about an hour before I found this simple solution to the problem. All other posts and books! simply said the “more” feature existed without really explaining where in the hell it was located. Godddd, I can’t believe this is not more obvious in WP or WP books.

I’m thinking of putting a front page onto my blog. If I do this, how do I put the excerpts from recent posts onto it? I’m currently using the Digg3 template on WordPress.com.

Can’t view the video. There is just a white dot flickering around on a black screen. Is there a text version of these instructions somewhere?
