HI! I wondering how do I cut post entry in list pages (eg Index page)?

You can do it on a per-post basis, by entering [more] in your post.  Then on the index page, it should stop at that point with a "More..." link the person can click to read the full post.  In order for this to work, make sure the "Break Post" extension is enabled in the control panel, which I believe it is by default.

Or if you prefer not to enter [more] in each post, on the Settings tab in the control panel, check the box "Only show Description of Posts", and when you check it, another box will appear where you can enter the number of characters that should be shown before a "More..." link appears.

I would suggest doing either one of the above things, but not both.

Hi Ben,
Could you please explain the above scenario with a sample?

This is your very long post [more] that you want to split.

Saving above as a post will display "This is your very long post" in the post list, and complete post (except [more]) in the post detail page.
