New LJ feature.

For those of you who don't follow the LiveJournal development communities, I want to introduce you to an extremely nifty new feature.

If you're reading this, you've just seen the feature in action. It's called <lj-cut>. It lets you divide an entry so that only part of it shows up initially, and you have to click to see the rest.

I'm sure you can see the many uses this could have, ranging from giving a summary of a long entry, with a link to the rest, or telling people about pictures while letting them click to actually see them, so that friends pages and such load faster.

So basically, the way you use it is to just put <lj-cut> where you want the cut to be. To make it look nice, put it on the first line of your second paragraph (or wherever your long text starts) so you don't get extra breaks in there.

Over all, I'm thinking <lj-cut> is a very nifty feature. ;-)


Re: Hrm. . .

I think it didn't propagate fully.. probably caught the news right as it was being released. A couple hours later when I checked my friends page again, I saw the read-more link on Petfish's, so I think it was propagation.

Its a nifty feature though.. Good for surveys!
