Extended Entry   PDF  Print  E-mail 
Using the “Extended Entry” is a way to keep the front page of your newsletter cleaner and faster-loading for people with slow internet connections. Read on for instructions and details.
  1. Make a new entry or edit an existing entry.
  2. Once you’re in the “Create New Entry” or “Edit Entry” screen, you’ll notice several text box fields — Title, Entry Body, Extended Entry and several others. We’re concerned with Entry Body & Extended Entry today. Those two fields make up your post.
  3. What you type in the “Entry Body” field will show up on the front page of your newsletter. I’d recommend typing the first couple sentences or first paragraph in there.
  4. When you type something in the “Extended Entry” field, a “Continue reading” link will appear on the front page. When people click on that link, they will be taken a page that contains the entire entry (both parts).
  5. Save your article and click the “View Site” button to see your changes.
The key here is just to experiment….try out the various buttons and options, save your changes and see what happened. If you’re not sure what something is and don’t want to mess your newsletter, send an email and we’ll be glad to help you.
