Can you teach me this:

Whenever I post an entry that's too long, I use the code: which shows up as (Read more...)

EXAMPLE:
I'd like to know what code you use for it to come out:
(Read about these dates from hell)

Can you teach me how to do it?

minus the brackets, it looks like: lj-cut text="text you want superimposed over cut"

That's it, really.

It won't come out!

I added the exact code:

lj-cut text="TAKE A PEEK"

Do I add way at the bottom of my entry or leave it out completely?

You do add /lj-cut at the bottom, yes, or the cut won't show. Sorry. Should have mentioned that part.

And you only add it to the line just below or at the end of the text you want cut.

For instance, nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense,nonsense. but then you can continue the sentence regardless and it looks like one simple sentence instead of a paragraph.

nope... at the beginning of your entry you add the code < lj-cut text =" " >

and just put the text between the quotation marks...

Love always,

You place the code in the exact spot you normally would for a non text code. (lj-cut text="Take a peek") goes after the spot where you want to cut and (/lj-cut) goes at the end of the entry. Of course use <> instead of ( ) .
