This is now implemented by inserting a Read more... tag (the button is located below the editor area) a dotted line appears in the edited text showing the split location for the Read more.... A new Plugin takes care of the rest.
It is worth mentioning that this does not have a negative effect on migrated data from older sites. The new implementation is fully backward compatible.

By using digital payments to pay Ebola response workers, Sierra Leone massively cut payment times, avoiding large-scale strikes and ensuring a stable workforce to defeat Ebola. Sierra Leone’s experience shows the critical importance of preparing early for digital payments before crises hit.
FREETOWN / NEW YORK, 18 May, 2016 – Mobile phones serving as digital “wallets” for payments to response workers proved an invaluable tool in Sierra Leone’s response to the Ebola crisis, according to a new study from the United Nations-based Better Than Cash Alliance.
With economic instability, natural disasters and political conflict now taking place at unprecedented rates, the new research offers valuable lessons on how to harness the power of technology to help emergency workers reach more people by paying them digitally during crises.The country has been Ebola free since January.

A PASSIONATE LETTER TO HIS EXCELLENNCY THE PRESIDENT – 41ST EDITION SALARIES AND WAGES AS THEY BOTHER ON CORRUPTION
Your Excellency Sir,
I am delighted again to do you this piece at this strategic time of a crucial global summit on corruption at Buckingham Palace, United Kingdom, convened by Prime Minister David Cameran of Great Britain. Without controversy, corruption is a global phenomenon that is robbing people and nations of the earth, especially in Africa, of greater opportunities, rapid and sustainable economic development, political stability, equitable society, formidable peace and security.
DID SLPP LEARN GOOD LESSONS FROM ADP FLAGBEARERSHIP CONVENTION?
Every day we learn to live and we live to learn, particularly from both present and past events, be they good or bad. But looking at things, it seems as if the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) deliberately refusing to learn from both present and past happenings in the world, especially in the country’s political activities. They seemingly refusing to learn good lessons from the world’s every day events, especially political events, including Europe, America and African politics.
In view of that they also seems not to learn from their present and past mistakes for the success of their party in the country. Therefore, I am constrained to say that they seemingly failed to do that because of their personal prides and political egos of some of their members. They (SLPP) know why they are losing elections to APC, but they always turn blind eyes to that pretending not knowing anything about that at their own expense.
The SLPP know that they normally lose elections to APC because they do not believe in working very hard with honesty for the people in the country like what APC is currently doing. They spent complete 11 years in power but they did very little for the country and for its people, particularly in terms of the improvement of electricity (Kabbah tiger), good hospital facilities, good roads etc.
FREETOWN, Sierra Leone, May 26, 2016/ -- Crises of all sorts, from conflicts to natural disasters to health emergencies, are happening at unprecedented rates around the world – so much so, that the United Nations is convening the first ever World Humanitarian Summit this month. There is increasing recognition that the sheer scale of the humanitarian challenges facing the world today means that governments like ours have to be prepared for future shocks, by laying the groundwork for more inclusive and resilient economies.
In our experience battling the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone, one solution saved lives, delivered major cost savings, and continues to help the economy rebuild and recover. For many, this solution is so simple and logical it is almost unexpected: digital payments.
When we digitized Ebola Response Worker payments, we reduced payment times from a month to a week, as a new study by United Nations-housed Better Than Cash Alliance has revealed (http://www.apo.af/Deh1qI). Getting payments to workers on time reduced fraud risks and increased efficiency and transparency.
