Teasers

Some of Blot’s templates show a teaser for each post on your blog's index page instead of the full post. By default, Blot creates this teaser from the first few paragraphs in the blog post. You can modify the post’s teaser using metadata or insert the breakpoint yourself in the middle of the file.

Using metadata

You can specify a blog post’s teaser in the metadata at the start of the file. Here’s an example blog post with a customized teaser:

 Post 
Teaser: This sentence is used as the teaser if your
        blog's template supports them.

Everything else in the blog post will not affect the content of the teaser.

Please note that some templates won't use this teaser. They may show the full post, or just its thumbnail.


Using a breakpoint

You can specify the end of the teaser using the {{more}} tag somewhere in the file. Here’s an example blog post:

 Post 
Everything above the ’more’ tag, including this line, will be in the post’s teaser.

{{more}}

Anything after the ’more’ tag, including this line, will not be in the post’s teaser.
