Markdown is a language that makes it super easy to turn normal human-readable syntax into HTML. You know, HTML, the things websites are made of? Cool as all hell, I know. You can use Markdown whilst making a tumblr post by simply clicking on the litte settings wheel, and changing your text editor from Rich Text to Markdown , and just get writing!
Why Use the Keep Reading Link?
See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
Some Tumblr blogs rely on lots of text content. When they appear on the homepage as a continuous stream of text the solution is to use the Keep Reading link. This is functionality that Tumblr offers and can be used in any theme that shows the full-text content of each post on the homepage. There are two great advantages of using the Keep Reading link.
How to Add the Keep Reading Link to a Tumblr Blog?
We only can do it from the pc version. What a shitty useless app. Keep reading. After I click the read more break button and the line shows up in the text box, highlight it and click the insert link button. Just click insert link. After that, just type whatever you want under the line. However, on mobile it seems to be broken. In the past I tried to use it, but for some reason the post either stays unchanged or turns blank. It sucks because those on mobile miss out on some of my research posts.
Use "Read More" breaks to shorten long posts and make your blog more visually appealing. Readers will still be able to see the first part of your post on your blog page, and can click the "Read More" link at the end to view the post in its entirety. By taking advantage of this feature, you can fit more of your posts on a single screen, and your followers don't have to contend with one post filling up their entire dashboard. Click the "Text" posting option on your Tumblr dashboard to create a new post. To add the "Read More" link to a text post you already published, open the post in edit mode.
