how to use the lj-cut

I thought that since I've introduced memes into this community, and they can get a bit long, I'd give a little tutorial in how to use the lj-cut. This way we can make the posts shorter so that people don't have to scroll for miles to get to entries at the bottom.

The easiest way to use the lj-cut, I've found, is to use the rich text editor. So here's how I do it:

1. When you're on the post to journal screen, look at the bottom of the post box and click the link that says switch to rich text mode.
2. Once in rich text just type you entry like you normally would
3. When you're finished typing, highlight the text that you'd like to put behind the cut.
4. Once the text is highlighted look at the top of the post box and click the second box on the top from the left. This is the lj-cut box and it will automatically insert the lj-cut for you.
5. When you click the lj-cut box a window will pop up with the words Read more..., if you want to you can change the words and that will become the link for your cut text.

I think that this will help make out posts shorter and give the display page of the community a more streamlined look. I would be really very appreciative if you guys would give it a try. I think you'll like it.

A year after Katrina
Hello peeps. I can't believe it been a year since Katrina. I just got used to not waking up in my bed that was in NO. But I am not used to my new life. I was just curious to know your take on the aftermath of Katrina and how you are coping with your new life. Love Sonya
