Adding Read More Button On Blogger

Important: All scripts hosted on don't work anymore because Google has blocked that SVN repository.

Showing full post on homepage is not a good idea at all and it also makes your blog's loading a bit slow. So now i'am going to tell you how to add Read More button on your blog to make loading fast and giving a pro look to your blog. Here we go :

  • Go To Blogger > Template > Edit HTML > Search for </head>
  • Just above </head> paste following script:

<script type='text/javascript'>var thumbnail_mode = "no-float" ;
summary_noimg = 430;
summary_img = 340;
img_thumb_height = 100;
img_thumb_width = 120;
<script type='text/javascript'>
function removeHtmlTag(strx,chop){
var s = strx.split("<");
for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++){
s[i] = s[i].substring(s[i].indexOf(">")+1,s[i].length);
strx = s.join("");
chop = (chop < strx.length-1) ? chop : strx.length-2;
while(strx.charAt(chop-1)!=' ' && strx.indexOf(' ',chop)!=-1) chop++;
strx = strx.substring(0,chop-1);
return strx+'...';
function createSummaryAndThumb(pID){
var div = document.getElementById(pID);
var imgtag = "";
var img = div.getElementsByTagName("img");
var summ = summary_noimg;
if(img.length>=1) {
imgtag = '<span style="float:left; padding:0px 10px 5px 0px;"><img src="'+img[0].src+'" width="'+img_thumb_width+'px" height="'+img_thumb_height+'px"/></span>';
summ = summary_img;
var summary = imgtag + '<div>' + removeHtmlTag(div.innerHTML,summ) + '</div>';
div.innerHTML = summary;

If you want to change image thumbnail size then find these numbers 100 and  120.

  • Now click on Expand Widgets Template and search for <data:post.body/> and replace it with following code :

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'>
<div expr:id='"summary" +'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'> createSummaryAndThumb("summary<>");
<a class='more' expr:href='data:post.url'>Read more ...</a>

Save It and we're take a look at your blog......
