Bismillah Hir-Rahman Nir-Rahim.
Start with the name of Allah the most merciful and the most beneficent. Add read more button to blogger is a very common tutorial in blogger. Read more helps in showing a post in a short way to homepage. When you click to jump break icon in blogger than read more text automatically added, but I don't like only read more text, do you? If your answer is no, so don't worry. I am going to tell you that how can you add read more button to your blog. There is a variety of read more buttons, but I'm providing you the unique and simple read more button.

Add read more button to blogger.

  • Go to blogger dashboard,
  • paste the below code just above the </head> tag:
<script type='text/javascript'> summary_noimg = 40; summary_img = 40; img_thumb_height = 120; img_thumb_width = 120; </script> <script type='text/javascript'> //<![CDATA[ function removeHtmlTag(strx,chop){ if(strx.indexOf("<")!=-1) { var s = strx.split("<"); for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++){ if(s[i].indexOf(">")!=-1){ s[i] = s[i].substring(s[i].indexOf(">")+1,s[i].length); } } strx =  s.join(""); } chop = (chop < strx.length-1) ? chop : strx.length-2; while(strx.charAt(chop-1)!=' ' && strx.indexOf(' ',chop)!=-1) chop++; strx = strx.substring(0,chop-1); return strx+'...'; } function createSummaryAndThumb(pID){ var div = document.getElementById(pID); var imgtag = ""; var img = div.getElementsByTagName("img"); var summ = summary_noimg; if(img.length>=1) {    imgtag = '<span style="float:left; padding:0px 10px 5px 0px;"><img src="'+img[0].src+'" width="'+img_thumb_width+'px" height="'+img_thumb_height+'px"/></span>'; summ = summary_img; } var summary = imgtag + '<div>' + removeHtmlTag(div.innerHTML,summ) + '</div>'; div.innerHTML = summary; } //]]> </script>


  1. summary_noimg = 40; change the value of post summary if no image is in the post.
  2. summary_img = 40; change the value of post summary if image is in the post.
  3. img_thumb_height = 120; change the value of read more thumbnail height.
  4. img_thumb_width = 120; change the value of read more thumbnail width.
  • Now find <data:post.body/> and replace the code with below code:
 <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'> <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
.jump-link {
    font-size: 0px;

.jump-link a {
    font-size: 0px;
    color: #ffffff;
 <div expr:id='"summary" +'><data:post.body/></div> <script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb("summary<>");</script> </b:if> </b:if> <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'><data:post.body/></b:if> <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'><data:post.body/></b:if> <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'> <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'> <div style='float:right;margin-right:10px;margin-top:5px;'> <a expr:href='data:post.url'><img class="readmoreimg" height="35" src="" width="90" /></a> </div> </b:if> </b:if>
If you have more than one <data:post.body/> tag so try to replace the code with first <data:post.body/> tag, if its not work than press CTRL+Z and find second <data:post.body/> tag and replace it with the above code. Do the same with every <data:post.body/> tag, until its not work.

  • Click to save template and its done.
