posts tagged "read more"

Just letting you know that button to insert a 'read more' break doesn't always show up in posts. Without it you need to click 'html' to edit the raw format and paste in <!-- more -->

I’ve tried it before (back when I made that tutorial, in fact!) but couldn’t make it work!

Maybe your tip will work for others though… Unless the numerous tumblr’s upgrades has since solved that issue.

So, I am sort of new and I saw your 'read more' post, what if you have it on 'rich text editor' but still doesn't allow you to do the 'read more' thing?

I don’t know tbh. All I can tell you is that the “read more” option is only available for TEXT post. Also my tutorial was made based on using tumblr on desktop computer or laptop so I have no idea how it is through a tablet or smartphone.

If you’re on a computer and you’re making a text post but you still can’t find the “Read more” option even after checking your settings to make sure your rich text editor is on, your best bet would probably be to contact tumblr directly.

I’m sorry I can’t be of much help on this.

How do you put a 'Read More' thingy when you're reblogging a post?

It’s basically the same thing - you just click in the post from where you want things to be “hidden” then click on the “read more” icon and it’ll automatically insert the break line. Everything from there and after/under in that post will be in the “read more” and linked to the post on your blog once you’re done reblogging it.


Hi! You made a post about putting a read more on a tumblr text post except now they've changed the layout formatt :( Do you know how to do it now because the button doesn't exist anymore when you type ?

I updated that post a while back: here! You probably saw the original version since that’s the one that ppl have been reblogging mostly. The button’s still, they just changed the icon! :)

Hi^^ I want to ask about the page breaker tutorial that u made. Thank you for that! But tumblr seem to have remove the page breaker icon, how do i do the "read more" without it?

Hi Kyuhyun-fan! Tumblr hasn’t removed the icon, it’s just modified it? It looks like this now:


Otherwise if you’re trying to use the “read more” in anything else than a text post, tumblr won’t let you. The last possibility is that your “rich text editor” option was somehow taken off in your account settings.

For anyone still wondering how to do a it: here

Lemme know how it goes! :)

How to do a text cut/”read more” on tumblr

Create a regular text post. You can even go into an already existing one and edit it.


Then type/put in whatever you wanted to post here. Ok? OK! (Ignore the repeated words in my screencap. FML.)


Once you’re done, choose what you want to hide under a cut. Click right before the first letter of that part to have the “blinking text cursor” placed there.


Then click on the 2nd button from the right, next to the “html” button.




A dotted line and “READ MORE” will appear right above the line where your text cursor was.


Everything of this post after the “read more” line will be put under a cut. On their dashboard, your followers will only to have to click on the link of your post to go to your entire entry. Visitors who go directly on tumblr will also need to do the same thing but the advantage of this is that it won’t clutter your tumblr or your followers’ dashboards.

Click “create post” (or “save changes” if you’re editing an existing post). This is what it’ll look like on the dashboard once you’re done:


[EDIT] If for some reason you’re missing the “read more” option/button
- you most likely have the wrong box checked in your preferences:

Click on “account" at the top of your dash and go to "preferences" then check what you have at "edit posts using”. The option chosen should be rich text editor”. Don’t forget to save preferences once done.

That should fix it. [/EDIT]

And guess what?! YOU’RE DONE!
