OT: Drupal Question

Submitted by trickydick81 on June 1st, 2010 at 4:50 PM

Anyone know how Brian selectively chooses posts to have the "read more" option?


I'm new to drupal and it seems like the only way to manipulate post lengths is to change the "Length of Trimmed Posts" on the "Post Settings" screen... But this trims all my posts... There are certain posts I want the full text to show on the main page, and others I don't.



Any help would be appreciated! (Oh, and I've searched drupal.org with no luck).

From the limited amount that I have worked with it, I recall that there were post types (Front page, Diary, Forum Post, Wiki, etc.). I think you need to set that up and then trim the Front Page type posts.

Thanks everyone! The <!--break--> works perfect.


Why is something that seems so easy, so difficult to find on the drupal site? It's very cloak and dagger over there!
