Summaries

This is probably one for my mate Tim Swift

How do I sort my blog out so that only the first paragraph/number of words is shown and people have to click on the thread to read more?

Otherwise, I go off on a long tangent about a subject and it uses up loads of my front page.

How do I get round that?

From memory (I don't use blogger that much) you can't do this on Blogger.com. Both Typepad (£3-£8 per month) or Wordpress.com (free) allow you to. You also can't do catetories (so that you can label posts as Kensington, Labour Party etc).

If you switch your blogger account to the new blogger beta you can do categories (as well as various other benefits such as easily being able to change the layout by dragging bits of the template to where you want them).
