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.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
