I keep stumbling across articles online about this, that, or the other that have a paragraph of opening text or an image, then the words ‘see more pictures after the jump’ or ‘the answer is after the break’. Thing is, there’s about a quarter inch of white space and then the article continues with the promised content. I’m not aware of any ‘jump’ or ‘break’ - at least not one significant enough to warrant mentioning.
I even turned off adblock to see if it might be referring to an advertising banner or some such, but nope.
What the heck does it mean?
