Expandable Post Summary FAQ

What is expandable post summary

Expandable post summary is a favorite Blogger hack especially with those that writes very long posts that takes forever to scroll down, and they would like to have just a short summary ending with a READ MORE or READ THE REST OF THE POST link which one can click to see the whole post.

Expandable Post Summary hacks

The latest hack is the jQuery expandable post summary (method 1) which only requires 2 steps in editing the template. However, according to jQuery expandable post summary test, jQuery expandable post summary test 2 and jQuery expandable post summary test 3, this hack will work well for those who don't have many gadgets to slow down the downloading. If you have lots of gadgets slowing down the blog, you will initially see the whole post, and the post will be summarized only when the blog is fully downloaded.

If you don't like that, you should try older expandable post summary hack (method 2).

Examples of blogs with expandable post summary

Good Health Information (method 2)
Holidays and festivals (Method 1)
Investment and money (Method 1, wait until blog fully downloaded to see the post summary)
Career and you (Method 1, wait until blog fully downloaded to see the post summary)

Hi there,
I desperately need some help from Google Tech Support. The online automated help is of no use for me (I've already tried it many times). I accidently deleted my google account, which deleted my blogs! Stupid me I know! But after searching the internet for hours, I've found there are quite a few that have made the same mistake. Anyhow, I seem to be up against a brick wall. These blogs are really important to me. One is my family journal events & happenings for the past 2 years. The other is a blog I designated to help end social injustices around the world. Currently I am raising money for my friends who are adopting twins from Uganda. I had an online auction up when the blog went down. I am so heartbroken over this. Please help?
Thanks,
Amy

You have to give more details like blog URL and perhaps user name (email address) before anyone can even try to help
