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.

2016 Global Peace Conference to be held in Freetown---as IPRA 50th Birthday confab ends in Istanbul
The 26th biennal conference of the Internatonal Peace Research Association (IPRA) is billed to take place in Freetown, Sierra Leone in November 2016, marking the second time Africa has hosted the conference since the founding of IPRA in 1964. This was announced following the re-election of the two IPRA Secretaries-general, Dr Ibrahim Seaga Shaw (pictured) and Dr Nesrin Kenar, who co-ordinated the 25th IPRA conference in Turkey, at the organisation’s administrative meeting on August 14 during the 25th IPRA conference in Istanbul to serve a second term of two years.
Sierra Leone’s Minister of Transport and Aviation, Honourable Leonard Balogun Koroma has said that the suspension of seven airlines to Sierra Leone “is already disrupting cross border and regional trade.”
He made the remarks during a recent telephone interview from neighbouring Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where he signed Air Services Agreements with his UAE counterpart, Mohamed Al Mansour. “The suspension has caused the reduction of supply of essential commodities and its attendant impact on prices and loss of business incomes.”
According to the Minister, prior to the outbreak of the Ebola virus from neighbouring Guinea in May this year, there were nine airlines flying to the Lungi International Airport, but seven of them suspended their operations; British Airways, Asky, Air Ivoire, Arik Air, Gambia Bird, Kenya Airways and Air France.
Dr. David Tam-Baryoh, a journalist who hosts the programme “Monologue” on Citizen Radio in Sierra Leone was released today, Friday, November 14, 2014 at about 3:30 pm, after 10 days in detention even though the executive detention order stated that Tam-Baryoh was arrested for incitement, many believe the authorities wanted to prevent him from further criticizing how the government is handling the Ebola crises.
The journalist was released on a 50 million Leones bail (approximately US$10,000); and has gone home without any charges, but must be reporting at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) every Monday morning.
TRIBUTE TO THE CHIEF MEDICAL SURGEON OF THE UNITED METHODIST HOSPITAL: DR MARTIN SALIA OF SIERRA LEONE
Once again, the somber valleys and hills of Sierra Leone are echoing the hallowed cry of grief and sadness for the passing of a national hero, Dr. Martin Salia, who tragically lost the battle against the deadly Ebola Virus at the Nebraska Medical center in the United States of America on November 17, 2014. Despite every effort to save his precious life and in the midst of the world’s best equipped medical isolation unit with experienced Surgeons in the world, he could not survive the journey of hope he so eagerly wish to see for his beloved Sierra Leone.
Dr. Martin Salia’s death marked a new turning point against the fight of the Ebola virus – that early intervention is so critical to the chances of survival. His message to every Sierra Leonean is one of doing the most good for the absolute welfare of our nation: Dr. Salia also summoned us to heed to our sacred callings and to know that we are the vessels of the Almighty God. “I firmly believe that God wanted me to do it.” He said. “I knew deep within myself, there was just something inside of me, that the people of this part of Freetown needed help.” Such moral inspirations reaffirmed the brave heart and the indelible spirit of compassion that Dr. Salia represented in every human imagination.
Seven doctors have now been confirmed dead by Ebola. We fear that’s not the end of the story.
Starting with Dr. Omar Khan, the first doctor to die of Ebola in Sierra Leone, on to the latest ones yesterday Dr Martin Salia and Dr. Moses M. Kargbo, many of us still wonder why others could survive (as we have been told all this while) but our doctors couldn’t survive.
Who really should be blamed for the death of these doctors – people whom we so badly need? Is it because of lack of proper treatment or what?
Or is it that we should blame no one for their deaths except the doctors themselves? We are told that early reporting helps a great deal – but this early reporting business is absent on the side of these dead doctors: they prefer observing and treating themselves until it is too late.

The Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella Movement in Sierra Leone has on behalf of Dr Kandeh Yumkella presented food items worth millions of Leones to students at Njala University. The event took place over the weekend at the auditorium hall in Mokondi campus at Njala, Bo District, Southern Sierra Leone.
In his presentation, National Coordinator of the students’ wing at Fourah Bay College, Moses E. N. Sesay, said the donation is part of Dr Yumkella’s support towards the student in the ongoing Ebola fight in the country especially those students residing in the campus from Kenema and Kailahun respectively.
He said N’jala is at the bottom of Dr. Yumkella’s heart, who always remembers the university because it made him what he is today.
