For Cyn

Trying again. Edit, try again.

Ok, I had the html code wrong It is "<"lj-cut">" your post "<"/lj-cut">" without the quotation marks.

Let me go try that. It is pretty much like I tried before...I had the lj-cuttext="read more" in the little triangles, and it wasn't working as it once did. Frakking Live Jumble.

In your other reply to me though you had the word "text" squished up against lj-cut. >>>lj-cuttext="read more"<<<

You can do the text if you choose, but it is coded differently. If you just do the code listed above LJ puts in the words "read more" as a default.

Yeah, I wrote 'text' separate this time. But oddly, when I was first instructed to do it, the text was all one with 'cut'. ::::rolls eyes::::
Who the hell knows, lj is so strange sometimes.

Oh. Um, well ... I never did it with text touching. I always screwed up the hyphen, put it in lj user and not in lj-cut, post, the cuss. Now I use the rich text editor when possible.

The mnemonic I learned was to think of the hyphen as a little knife-stroke, cutting across the words lj-cut.

lj user: no hyphen.
lj-cut: "cut" in between the words.

Now *that* makes sense. It seemed just wrong to have a hyphen in one and not the other, an LJ torture device. ;-)

It worked, I wonder if it was a temporary glitch, because looking in my little book of tricks, it is just what I had written. But for about three weeks, it wouldn't work at all. Fricking Live Jumble-Jungle.
