... all about the LJ CUT tag.
(for those of you not interested... why are you reading?)
The lj cut tag is a code you can use in a post that will make a "read more" clickable bit of text that kinda "hides" everything else you say in your post from your friends page until the reader clicks the link.
<lj-cut text="this is a cut tag">
See above where I said "it works like this..." and now that text is gone?
That text was the "message" part of an lj cut tag.
The anatomy of an lj cut tag is as shown above. It begins with a left angle bracket, then the tag "lj-cut" followed by the operator "text=" which you can choose to ignore.
If you don't put the operator in... (so your lj cut tag only looks like <lj-cut>) then the content of your post will end with a highlit (Read More...).
You can make it say something besides "Read More..." by putting text in the quotes after the "text=" operator in the lj cut tag.
In my example, I put "this is a cut tag" in the text part of the operator.
see... like this... <lj-cut text="this is a cut tag">
Have you tried it yet?
Go on... try it.
