Second question of the day - on my first blog post on the main blog page there's a 'read more' link at the bottom of the text which goes to the full-text page. I've just copy/pasted my second piece and that link isn't there - there's only the first paragraph and no access to the full piece.
Anyone got any ideas why, please?
Added (2016-08-08, 2:39 PM) --------------------------------------------- I also now have 2 search fields on my pages! How can I remove one of them please? Sorry for all the questions - I may get the hang of this thing one day!

Added (2016-08-09, 9:48 AM) --------------------------------------------- Sorted the extra search field with Builder. I'm happy I'm eventually solving my own issues, but it's taken so much time to find the solutions by trial and error.
Okay - I have no idea what to do with the $cut$ thingy so am just trying to go in and edit the text manually. The 'read more'link only appears on the first blog post I put up, despite the module settings being set to show only the first 800 characters for each post. The full text of the second post above can be accessed only by clicking its heading.
freelance7076, try reuploading the post. It should work, I tested it. It might have been a small glitch at the addition of the entry.
As about the $CUT$ variable, it's a code that will cut the entry text where it's inserted. This way, the system will show only the characters that are entered until the $CUT$ code in the entry listings. I thought you were using that method, but on your website, it's not the case.
hey i'm joe and i do not work for the company anymore, sorry for the late replies icon by ch-chau
Hi Bigblog. Thank you for looking. I just saw you on the site actually! Do I need to insert the $CUT$ code into the HTML version of the blog text to define how much gets shown on the blog front page then? That would mean I have better control over where thebreak in the text comes - no more half-sentences? Great!
One probably daft question - what's the difference between a guest and a user on my site please? I saw you and another user but I would have thought you'd have shown as guests?
freelance7076, yes, the $CUT$ variable gives you complete freedom and control over what needs to be shown in the entry listings and what not.
As about the other concern, "users" are called those people who have registered (e.g. logged in through a social networking site) using the /register page, or the /index/1 link, for that matter. Visitors are anonymous, unknown people who didn't log in to the website. We had to log in to test the things out. I'd recommend you to properly set the permissions for Users as right now anyone logged in to the website, whether or not part of the "Administrators" group, can add new entries to your blog.
Yikes! I thought I had done that already. Obviously I didn't get that right either! I don't want anyone to be able to log in, just to have people visit and comment. Okay - I'll go and look at that. Thank you!
I managed to remove the email field on the comments section earlier, so it's just a name needed to comment, but how can I stop people from adding stuff other than that please? I've looked at the Users section in the CP- do I need to uncheck everything or is there a blanket way to switch them off?
Morning Bigblog and thank you. I don't know if I got it right - just turned everything off for everyone except the admin - so maybe nothing will work now!! I'm learning slowly.
I'm really concerned that I'm still not getting access to Builder or anything to edit text etc while logged in on this home IP. Is there any way to sort this out please? I'll be out of hotspot time on the iphone soon! I've tried applying the 'no fixation' setting on the IP address but there's no change.
On a positive note, the Read More link is there and working now, thank you.
