I like how the comments have panned out. Do you know how to do a 'cut'? Have a look at what I've posted in LC, just now.

It's always a good idea to put the full article in, under a cut. That way it's archived. Links die eventually! :-)

On the icon bar, there is symbol of a few lines of text, with a dippy up and line under it. It's seventh along, btween black and red bars, and a blue topped chart. When you rest your cursor on it, it says 'cut'.

If you type a load of text, or paste an entire article, you highlight most of it, after leaving the top paragraph alone. After you've hihglighted, click 'cut'. A line of test will appear at the top of the page, asking permission to show scripted windows. Click that line, and clicl "temporay allow scripted windows" Then go back down and click 'cut' again.

A second window will appear, saying read more. You can change the type, or just click 'okay'.

If you go to your reading page now, you'll see my cut on the Sun article. Click the blue line of text, and the whole article will unfold.

Try it out a few times, eithr on your journal, or in LC. You can always delete them!

Under The Cut is an important skill in this sort of community.

When you hit 'post' you should be getting a series of text and formatting icons - starting with B I etc, for bold and italic. Thsi is in main post, not comments. So you can hit 'post' and watch the cards come up with the text box in them.

If this isn't coming up, are you on the HTML option? If so, hit 'Rich text' on the right hand side, where the rich text/HTML option are.
