A way for us to mark sections of the page as teaser would be good.
Simply including the first x words means that we have to change the way
For example, if a page has a story, the teaser should be a summary to
generate interest and/or enough information so the reader knows if she's
read it before:
- Which is more dangerous, a present from Zoltar, or a horde of kids
waiting for the opening of the Easter Egg hunt in Washington DC?
As opposed to the actual start of the story:
- Princess picked up another egg, scanned it, and returned it to its
hiding place. Then another. Then another. This was getting tedious.
