Just like what we see in WordPress blogs, blogger also supports showing summaries of published posts on home page with"read more" links to the original post. When I started blogging, I was confused whether I should show multiple posts on home page or single post. That time Blogger had not introduced the "After the Jump" feature. So showing multiple articles on home page was not a good idea at that time. The jump feature lets you display the summary (or the first paragraph) of published articles on home page. The major benefit of this feature is the non requirement to change any HTML changes by yourself. All you need to do is, just select the position of jump in text editor (in content) and the article part till that jump will be shown in home page. To read content after this jump position, reader should click on "read more" link displayed below the summary.
Steps to Display Post Summaries on Home
To display the published articles summaries on blog home page, follow the steps below.
- Open blogger Post Editor
- Select the position in content where the jumper set by placing mouse there
- Click on Jump break
Now you can see the jumper set there.
- Update/ Publish the work
The major use of this feature is, you can display more posts on home page by showing just the first paragraph of each one. Showing summaries of your recent posts will ensure more user friendly view for readers. In case if you are looking for additional step to improve your blogger blog traffic, follow the link below.
