Hide Read More Link In Blogger Static Pages

Read-More-Button The Read More link tutorial that I previously shared summarizes all posts to a specified length but then it even appears on Blogger’s newly introduced Static Pages where it should not be. I was scratching my head on how to solve this problem when Sam of Plenty Of E-books came to my rescue. He provided me with a code that shortens posts and also doesn’t let the read more link or button to appear on static pages. So lets replace our old code with this more updated one.

Note:- If you have never implemented this trick before then kindly read this tutorial first –> Add Read More Link To Your Posts



How To Summarize Posts and Hide Read More Link in Static Pages?

  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML
  2. Backup your template
  3. Search for the old read more code which looks like this,

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'>

<div style="text-align: right;">Read More ->></div></a>


or something similar to this. Simply replace it with this one,

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;static_page&quot;'><br/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'><br/>
<a expr:href='data:post.url'><div style='text-align: right;'>
<img height='33px' src='IMAGE URL OF READ MORE BUTTON' width='120px'/></div>


kindly replace IMAGE URL OF READ MORE BUTTON with Image link of your read more button. If you don’t have a button then grab one from some of the buttons I designed in past,

  1. Hello Mohammad,
    Brother you are too fast too furious,thanks a lot.
    hey can you tell me how to implement comment section in static page in blogger i am using disqus, please help me brother.

  2. Thank You Mohammad for giving the credit :)

    But I think you missed the Date Hack which you told can happen with this code only...

    I would suggest to use the default blogger comment form because of some following reasons:

    1. Disqus comments loads slow as so your blog too get slow.

    2. Its not SEO friendly I think. I don't know much about SEO but I read it somewhere.

    3. I even tried to install it but wasn't successful and didn't wanted much of a headache :p

    Thank You

  3. I m Using Jump Break from blogger

  5. @samsexy:

  6. @Dholakia

    Anytime pal and for comment system stick to Blogger. Simply the best from every angle. What looks good doesn't always taste good. Hope you get me :D

    For you I believe I would have to write some SEO related posts and I was wondering I should.


    Jump break could be an alternative I agree dude.


    A Pleasure! :)

  7. @Mohammad
    I am really a Dumb-ass when it comes to SEO and that reflects in my site...:p

    Its because I don't understand how to implement it..

  8. @Tariq
    Please find a better place to advertise..

  9. I am using Tanzanite.
    The read more image shows up in every static page.I tried to put in this code but it displays the following error message:

    Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: The string "--" is not permitted within comments. "

    And when i remove the comments it saya that
    Your template is invalid because the tag 'div' appears inside of the tag 'head'.

  10. @Ayush
    Try removing the following two things from the code..

    Don't understand why its saying that its not permitted...

  11. Oops sorry...
    The thing that was to be removed didn't came in my comment..
    Here it is...

    Replace '[' with '<'

  12. @Ayush

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I have edited the code above. you can now use it.

    Yes the problem was with the HTML comments which was incorrect and now the code will work just fine.

  13. What have you edited??? Confused here...<'.'>'

  14. I had mistakenly wrote the ending comments as <!--READ-MORE-STOPS-> instead of <!--READ-MORE-STOPS-->

    HTML can't be messed. :p

  15. ohh..
    That was just a difference of a hyphen that's y didn't get what was wrong..

  16. Thanks for the support.
