Paragraph-1Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Paragraph-2: Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

I have been using WLR for about a year now and I just stumbled on something I tested(just now), confirmed and thought to share.

Well, its how I created the “Continue Reading” for this post:

  • Place your cursor where ever you want the ‘Continue Reading’ link to appear in your post,
  • click Format, and then Split post.

A dotted line with “More” at the end is drawn across the post horizontally, and you’ll get a cool continue reading post split.

THATS ALL FOLKS !!!!

split2Notes: I checked the source code and found this: a one-liner: <!—more—> (left pic). Now, I’m wondering if its possible to alter the “Continue reading” text to something else.

I haven’t verified if the above works for other blogging platforms. When I do, i’ll holla back.

Till then, enjoy continue reading.
