How To Add The Blogger “Read More” Expandable Posts Link Keeping The Representative Picture

Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave your valuable comments for this post. If you would like to read my new posts via your email, please click on Subscribe to register. Thanks also for your rating. To know more information, please visit links below:

In the previous post, I have introduced a method to add "Read more" expandble link in your blog. All the posts change automatically to this form. However, have you regconized that, when your post has a representative picture for it, it does not appear in the home page before the icon "Read more...."? In this post, I shall show you how to display the representative picture of the post together with "Read more".

Actually I translate this post from a Vietnamese Website (by Anhvo). Vietnameses can visit this Website to read for more details!

Note: If you have used the method in the previous post, you must remove the code that you have replaced for <data:post.body/>. You should go back to the previous post to look for an exactly code for removing.

For those whose try the first time with this new method, you can follow the following steps:

1. Open the tag Edit HTML, click into Expand widget templates, find <data:post.body/> in the code (use Ctrl+F) and replace it by the following code:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<div expr:id='&quot;summary&quot; +'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb(&quot;summary<>&quot;);</script>
<span class='rmlink' style='float:right'><a expr:href='data:post.url'>--&gt; Read more...</a></span>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'><data:post.body/></b:if>

2. Add the following code in the HEAD (<head> .... </head>) of the template:

<script type='text/javascript'>
summary_noimg = 430;
summary_img = 340;
img_thumb_height = 100;
img_thumb_width = 120;

<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>

Note that, the red codes have the meanings as follow:

summary_noimg is the number of letters in the described part for posts having no representative picture.

is the number of letters in the described part for posts having representative picture.

img_thumb_height is the height of the representative picture (pixel).

img_thumb_width is the width of the representative picture (pixel).

Now you can try this method with your blog.

hi EasyAdsenseVn, i would like to ask some help.
i follow ur instructions clearly but then when i view my blog it appears the full topic of my blog & in the bottom of my post it appears the shorter version that has ur script. i want to hide full topic so that the expanded post only can be seen. i dnt know what is wrong, i just follow ur instructions.

Btw,im a newbie in blogging & im trying to learn more. Hope you could help me. thanks..
