The More Block is used to truncate blog entries so that only the first part of a post is displayed on the blog post homepage and archive pages.

Here’s what it looks like when it’s added to the Block Editor.

To add a More block to a page you click on the + icon at the left of any empty block or at the top left of the editor then search for More, or locate it in the Layout Elements section, and click on the More icon.
