Jump Break Is Visible Only In An Index Page

Some blog owners are unsure what a Jump Break looks like, when applied to their blogs.

Occasionally, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, we see the confusion.
Where's the Jump Break?
or
I added a Jump Break to several posts, but it never shows up!
When asked for a screen print of what they're seeing, they may provide a image of the post, in the Post Editor Preview window - or possibly, the published post, but in post page view.

Jump Break is visible in one type of display - index view.
  • An Archive retrieval list.
  • A Label search list.
  • Main page display.
Jump Break does not show up in post page view - or in any Preview display.


Now, you see it (or don't see it).

Now, you don't see it.
Jump Break provides a snippet of a post - when displayed in a post list. When the "Read More" caption is clicked, the post page, scrolled to the Jump Break, is displayed.

Unlike many "Read More" blog accessories, "Jump Break" is added to each post, one post at a time.
  • Jump Break does not require extra JavaScript code.
  • Jump Break can break precisely at the end of sentences or paragraphs.

The break itself is only visible, in the index page - and it's visible there, because "Read More" shows up, in place of the rest of the post - after it is properly added to the post. If you're looking for a logo in the post, "Here's a Jump Break!", you'll look in vain.

Dude, hit me with a comment!
