To make a text post, simply open a new text post form and type to your heart's content.
If you've just written a super-long wall of text and need some advice for how you can make it more digestible, there are a couple tools in your toolbelt specifically for this situation.
When your cursor is on a new blank line in the post, you can click on the tools that appear on the right-hand side of the post box:
- Add horizontal lines, to break your long-ass post into tidy little sections.
- Add a read-more link. When people see the post in their dashboard, they won’t see anything past where you put the link. Instead, they’ll see some blue text that says “Keep reading.” They can click that text to read the rest of your post.
