Problem with Blogger Read more hack

You must have seen read more links in blogger blogs, but there is a serious problem related with them.

no read more links

Suppose you enabled read more links in your blogger blogs using this hack (blogger help), now the problem is that it uses the CSS property

display:none

What happens is that even if your content is not displayed but its downloaded in the browser cache.

And if you got 5 to 10 post on your home page with read more links it will eat up all the bandwidth of the visitor and also your home page will take minutes to load since all the hidden stuffs (image, youtube videos etc) are going to loaded by default in the browser cache.

At present there is no solution to address this problem, all that you can do is to display only post titles on your home page instead of read more links.

That's why I'm displaying only post titles in my home page instead of read more links.
