  1. You’ve missed out on a lot! Clock­work Orange is a must see … and the old Plan­et of the Apes … and Del­i­catessen.

    Well, I tried fol­low­ing the tem­plate instruc­tions here, and it didn’t work. Didn’t fuck up my blog, but it just didn’t work, either. If you get a chance to look at the instruc­tions, maybe you’ll catch the error. Or should I mail you a text file of my tem­plate?

    No big rush. I’m hop­ing it’s some­thing straight­for­ward & not much trou­ble for you.

  2. I fig­ured out part of the prob­lem. Blog­ger uses (span style)(/span) tags to spec­i­fy ital­ics, bold face, etc. That was nuk­ing the (span class=“fullpost”)(/span) tags nec­es­sary for expand­able posts.

    So I went through and changed over to con­ven­tion­al tags, no span tags except the full­post bit. Now it hides the part it’s sup­posed to hide, but my “Read More!” link doesn’t link to any­thing.

    Does that tell you any­thing?

  3. Also: the [span] [/span] tags should nest, so they shouldn’t be clob­ber­ing each oth­er. Odd. Hmmm.

    (Unless, of course, Blogger’s markup isn’t as pur­ty as it should be…)
