In this tutorial I am going to explain how to remove "Auto Read More feature with Thumbnail".This method will not work with every blogger template.But this tutorial will help you to remove auto read more feature from many template you can download from here.

Before doing this change,I highly recommend to backup your blogger template first.

Login to your Blogger Dashboard --> Design --> Edit HTML.

Click on "Expand Widget Templates".

Now find below code in your template.(code can be change bit,according to your template.)

<p><script type='text/javascript'>
summary_noimg = 800;
summary_img = 650;
img_thumb_height = 150;
img_thumb_width = 200;
<script type='text/javascript'>

function removeHtmlTag(strx,chop){
var s = strx.split("<");
for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++){
s[i] = s[i].substring(s[i].indexOf(">")+1,s[i].length);
strx = s.join("");
chop = (chop < strx.length-1) ? chop : strx.length-2;
while(strx.charAt(chop-1)!=' ' && strx.indexOf(' ',chop)!=-1) chop++;
strx = strx.substring(0,chop-1);
return strx+'...';

function createSummaryAndThumb(pID){
var div = document.getElementById(pID);
var imgtag = "";
var img = div.getElementsByTagName("img");
var summ = summary_noimg;
if(img.length>=1) {
imgtag = '<span style="float:left; padding:0px 10px 5px 0px;"><img src="'+img[0].src+'" width="'+img_thumb_width+'px" height="'+img_thumb_height+'px"/></span>';
summ = summary_img;

var summary = imgtag + '<div>' + removeHtmlTag(div.innerHTML,summ) + '</div>';
div.innerHTML = summary;

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<div expr:id='&quot;summary&quot; +'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb(&quot;summary<>&quot;);</script>
<div><a expr:href='data:post.url'>Read more &#187;</a></div>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'><data:post.body/></b:if>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;static_page&quot;'><data:post.body/></b:if></p>

Now replace it with below code:


Save your template.

    OMG Thanks heaps!
    I have literally spent days (if not weeks) Googling this question and testing out different websites, but when I tried other websites, it wouldn't work.
    I am so glad I came across this website!
    IT ACTUALLY WORKS, even though I had to attempt it 2 times to finally find the correct codes.
