How to install Automatic Read More Hack for Blogger

There are two options you can choose from:

Step 1. Find (CRTL + F) this code:

<data:post.body/>

Step 2. And replace with this:

<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;’>
 <b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;’>
  <div>
   <b:if cond=’data:post.thumbnailUrl’>
    <img class=’post-thumbnail’ expr:alt=’data:post.title’ expr:src=’data:post.thumbnailUrl’ width=’72px’ height=’72px’/>
   </b:if>
   <data:post.snippet/>
  </div>
  <div class=’jump-link’>
   <a expr:href=’data:post.url’ expr:title=’data:post.title’><data:post.jumpText/></a>
  </div>
 <b:else/>
  <data:post.body/>
 </b:if>
<b:else/>
 <data:post.body/>
</b:if>

2. Read more only for older posts (your latest post will appear normal):

Find (CTRL + F) and replace <data:post.body/> with:

<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;’>
 <b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;’>
  <b:if cond=’data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl’>
   <b:if cond=’data:post.isFirstPost == &quot;true&quot;’>
    <data:post.body/>
     <b:if cond=’data:post.hasJumpLink’>
      <div class=’jump-link’>
       <a expr:href=’data:post.url + &quot;#more&quot;’ expr:title=’data:post.title’><data:post.jumpText/></a> 
      </div>
     </b:if>
   <b:else/>
    <div>
     <b:if cond=’data:post.thumbnailUrl’>
      <img class=’post-thumbnail’ expr:alt=’data:post.title’ expr:src=’data:post.thumbnailUrl’ width=’72px’ height=’72px’/>
     </b:if>
     <data:post.snippet/>
    </div>
    <div class=’jump-link’>
     <a expr:href=’data:post.url’ expr:title=’data:post.title’><data:post.jumpText/></a>
    </div>
   </b:if>
  <b:else/>
   <div>
    <b:if cond=’data:post.thumbnailUrl’>
     <img class=’post-thumbnail’ expr:alt=’data:post.title’ expr:src=’data:post.thumbnailUrl’ width=’72px’ height=’72px’/>
    </b:if>
    <data:post.snippet/>
   </div>
   <div class=’jump-link’>
    <a expr:href=’data:post.url’ expr:title=’data:post.title’><data:post.jumpText/></a>
   </div>
  </b:if>
 <b:else/>
  <data:post.body/>
 </b:if>
<b:else/>
 <data:post.body/>
</b:if>
