Jump Break or Summaries not working in Blogger

I am sure most of you already know that you can easily put page breaks in blogger so that just the summary of your post will show on your main page with a link stating read more.

However, what do you do when you this does not work?  When you insert a page break but the Read more does not show up?  How do you fix Jump Break not showing read more?


I have searched for these answers for almost a year - I had even asked my blog designer if she knew what change to my design had caused this and if there was a way to fix it.  Nothing and no one could fix this though!  I feel silly that i have found the answer and it was SO simple to do!  I know there were others who had this same problem so hopefully this will help you.


If you have problems seeing the Read More Link try doing the following adjustments.  Go to Design > Edit HTML.  Then click on "Expand Widget templates."  Now you can search for the following code 


  <b:if cond='data:post.hasJumpLink'>
  <div class='jump-link'>
    <a expr:href='data:post.url + "#more"'><data:post.jumpText/></a>
  </div>
</b:if>

If you can not find this code in your HTML you will need to add it.
Copy the code above and add it directly above (before) this code:

  <div class='post-footer'>

Now try it again and it should be working correctly!  Yes - seriously, 2 minutes later after MONTHS or A YEAR of searching and the problem is easily resolved!

Hopefully this will resolve the issue for any of you having this problem!

Thank you! I searched the web for hours looking for a way to fix this issue - it wasn't until I came across your post that I was able to fix it!

It took me forever to find out how to "fix" it so I figured I better do a quick post how to fix the page break issue in case others were having a hard time! Glad the info could help you!
