    Default A question about blog posts

    There are several members who post a small intro for each post. That tiny bit is all that you can see on the blog feed but when you click on the title you can read more of the entry.

    I'd like to know how that is done so that I can stop littering the blog feed with ugly walls of text.

    Can anyone help me out?

    It utilizes a glitch in the way the forum interprets HTML code the symbols < and > are used to indicate HTML code, so if you just use the first < the software doesn't quite know what to do with it and in certain views hides everything that comes after it until there is a closing > and then text after the closing > will be displayed.

    HOWEVER!

    Using HTML in the blogs is a permissions thing. It requires 1000 posts and one year of membership. https://forums.longhaircommunity.com...ad.php?t=68519
