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.

It takes more than presidential promises to make Sierra Leone a better place!
It was indeed with a heavy heart that I read the press release from Reporters Without Borders (RWB) raising alarm bells over the hounding of Independent Observer editors Jonathan Leigh and Bai Bai Sesay in the name of the much dreaded killer press law—the seditious criminal libel law of the 1965 Public Order Act. I cannot actually quantify the extent to which I dread this most obnoxious enemy of press freedom—and indeed the free world—not least because I suffered persecution in its name on a number of occasions under three regimes—the APC, NPRC, and the SLPP---but because it continues to cast a very negative image over our country’s democratic credentials.
Freetown, Feb. 26 (SLENA) - The Managing Director of the leading betting company, Mercury International Sierra Leone Limited, Martin E. Michael has said in Freetown that his company is contributing immensely to the country’s economic growth promotes the development of the nation.
He made this statement Monday this week in an exclusive interview with the Sierra Leone News Agency at their head office at Siaka Stevens Street.
Speaking to SLENA, Mr. Micheal said since the establishment of Mercury in 2007 many households now rely on the company to make ends meet, saying many Sierra Leoneans are today benefiting directly or indirectly from Mercury International.
MONDAY MARCH 3, 2014 – The Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) today implored the leadership of the Sierra Leone House of Parliament to support the Association in its quest to have the criminal portions of the Public Order Act of 1965 expunged and/or reviewed.
First meeting with the Speaker of the House, Hon. Sheku B.B. Dumbuya, SLAJ President Kelvin Lewis expressed the need for Parliament to support causes that will help deepen democracy in the country, not least upholding freedom of expression.
“SLAJ supports all democratic initiatives in the country. We believe freedom of expression should be allowed to flourish, which is why we’ve come to ask you to support our cause to have the criminal portions of the Public Order Act repealed or reviewed,” said Mr. Lewis. “SLAJ is not against the entire Public Order Act, we are concerned about those provisions in Part 5 of the Act that criminalise free speech.”
Many Sierra Leoneans mistake His Excellency the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma for a person that has a very soft spot for dealing with situations when they are ripe. They go with such perception because the President is such a quintessential gentleman - that his compassion, love for humanity and goodwill gestures to fellow Sierra Leoneans has characterized his leadership. But the fact remains that His Excellency the President has lived up to his promise that he has no sacred cow in his government and that government officials that would not deliver in the implementation of his ‘Agenda for Prosperity’ would have no place in his administration.
Lungi, Feb. 26 (SLENA) - Paramount Chief Bai Shebora Sheba Gbereh III of Kaffu Bullom Chiefdom, Port Loko District has been handed over to the Government of Sierra Leone for official recognition.
The Port Loko District Council Chairman, Ahmid Munirr Fofana did the formal handing over ceremony at a colourful ceremony in Mahera, the chiefdom headquarter town after the chief had fulfiled the traditions required by the institution of chieftaincy in that part of the country.
The Paramount Chief has been in confinement (known as (‘kantha’) with over thirty sub chiefs for approximately one month to undergo leadership skills and other types of training that would help him serve his subjects efficiently and effectively.
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 22, 2014 – The Nigerian High Commissioner to Sierra Leone, Mrs. Gladys Modupe Quist-Adebiyi, has said that it is in the interest of her Embassy and indeed all Sierra Leoneans to see that the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) and journalism generally develop in the country.
The Nigerian diplomat, who was addressing the SLAJ Executive during a courtesy call on her at her High Commission office, Hill Station in Freetown on Friday February 21, pledged her support to SLAJ in its quest to raise the professional level of their membership.
Sierra Leone President and United Nations Chief Mark End of 15 Years of Peace and Political Operations
Freetown, 5 March 2014 - "The completion of the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office, UNIPSIL, marks the end of more than 15 years of successive peace and political operations that all played critical roles in supporting Sierra Leone’s remarkable transition from war to peace," United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated during a joint press conference with Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma.
He commended the people of Sierra Leone for their determination to put the war behind and the international community for staying the course through the challenging process of keeping, consolidating and building peace. "Sierra Leone represents one of the world's most successful cases of post-conflict recovery, peacekeeping and peacebuilding," the Secretary-General further added during his second official visit to Sierra Leone, pointing out that other countries now torn by war can draw hope from this example. He stated that efforts must continue to build upon the peace gained today.
“We derive tremendous courage and confidence from the United Nations; the United Nations was pivotal in our transition from armed conflict to peace,” Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma said during the joint press conference. “We are building on this partnership for stability as we move forward with our actions for sustainable development, peace and democracy.”
Freetown, March 4 (SLENA) – The Managing Director of SALPOST, Mr. Samuel J. Koroma has informed the Sierra Leone News Agency that two 25-seater buses are expected by end of March 2014 as part of efforts to boost mail delivery services in the country.
The two buses which will cost a total of ninety thousand US Dollar ($90,000.) are expected to extend the network and frequency of delivery service to the rural areas and from the Lungi international airport to the General Post Office in Freetown.
Speaking to SLENA in an interview last week, Mr. Koroma said the use of the buses will strengthen the transportation capacity of his department which will include, among other things, transporting equipment as scheduled, convey workers so as to reduce the overhead cost associated with postal delivery service and also to improve the inter-regional communication in the country.
