Selective Expandable Post Summaries  

Blogger Help provides a simple hack to create expandable post summaries for your new blogger. But, it shows "Read More" link in every posts and some of you don't like this. Hackosphere tried to make a selective expandable post summaries for his Neo blogger template. In this post, i'll try to make it easier for you.

First, we have to edit your template code. Login to your Blogger account and go to Template - Edit HTML.
Find the </head> tag and add all of this code before it.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<style>.fullpost{display:inline;}</style>
<b:else/>
<style>.fullpost{display:none;}</style>
<script type='text/javascript'>
function checkFull(id) {
var post = document.getElementById(id);
var spans = post.getElementsByTagName(&#39;span&#39;);
var found = 0;
for (var i = 0; i &lt; spans.length; i++) {
if (spans[i].className == &#39;fullpost&#39;) {
spans[i].style.display = &#39;none&#39;;
found = 1;
}
if (spans[i].className == &#39;showlink&#39;) {
if (found == 0) {
spans[i].style.display = &#39;none&#39;;
}
}
}
}
</script>
</b:if>

Find the CSS style tag for your post content,
<div class='post-body'>
<p><data:post.body/></p>
<div style='clear: both;'/> <!-- clear for photos floats -->
</div>

and replace with this code.
<div class='post-body' expr:id='"post-" + data:post.id'>
<p><data:post.body/></p>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<span class='showlink'>
<p><a expr:href='data:post.url'>Read More...</a></p>
</span>
<script type='text/javascript'>
checkFull(&quot;post-<data:post.id/>&quot;);
</script>
</b:if>
<div style='clear: both;'/> <!-- clear for photos floats -->
</div>

Finish!

Implementation


Each post that you want to use this feature on will need this code:
<span class="fullpost"></span>

You'll enter the summary text outside the span tags and the remainder inside, like so:
Here is the beginning of my post.
<span class="fullpost">And here is the rest of it.</span>


Now, when a reader visits your blog, this post will appear like this:
Here is the beginning of my post.
Read more...


When they click the link, they'll go to the post page where they'll see the whole thing:
Here is the beginning of my post.
And here is the rest of it.
