I think its counter-intuitive to have to read through a post snippet on the front page of a blog, to find the (read whole post) link.

Is there any way I can make the post title itself clickable?

I third this idea too.

Instead of (read the entire post), could probably have it as "..." and hyperlinked it.

And how people would know that "..." indicates the post continues? Some people will just think the post is that, just what's on the front page.

As for having the title clickable, I am sure we can have that, either as default or an option.

mmm "read more..." is good.

and make the title link optional is ideal too :-) but whatever is easier for you to code Mauricio. Don't want to add more to the already busy plans. hehe

You know what happens to people who crack under pressure? They go off the edge and turn into psycho killers. Lets not do that to Mauricio. Who would run Geekzone then?

Anyway the optional click-able title is a great idea

P.S. I back Mauricio on the "..." thing. Non-followers of the Geek Faith may not realise what the dots mean, and think that the author has simply trailed off at the end of a sentence...
