The More Block in WordPress is a useful tool for displaying a preview of your post on your blog’s homepage or archive pages, while hiding the rest of the content until the user clicks on a “Read More” link. This can help you to keep your homepage and archives looking clean and organized, while still giving your users the option to read the full content of your posts.
To use the More Block, simply follow these steps:
- Open the post or page that you want to add the More Block to.
- Click on the “Add Block” button in the toolbar at the top of the editor.
- Search for “More” and select the More Block from the results.
- The More Block will be inserted into your post at the cursor position.
- Click on the More Block and open the settings panel.
- In the settings panel, you can customize the text that appears on the “Read More” link.
- Once you’re finished customizing the settings, click on the “Save” button.
Your post will now be displayed with a preview on your homepage or archive pages. When a user clicks on the “Read More” link, they will be taken to a page where they can read the full content of your post.
Here are a few tips for using the More Block effectively:
- Use the More Block to display a preview of your post’s introduction. This will give your users a taste of what your post is about and encourage them to click on the “Read More” link to read the full content.
- Keep your post’s introduction short and to the point. You don’t want to give away too much information, or you’ll discourage your users from reading the full post.
- Use the More Block sparingly. Don’t use it on every post, or it will lose its effectiveness.
- Use the More Block in conjunction with other blocks to create a visually appealing layout for your blog. For example, you could use the More Block in conjunction with the Image Block to display a preview of your post’s featured image.
By following these tips, you can use the More Block to create a more engaging and informative blog for your users.
