Ive seen countless video tutroials on youtube and other sites in which people simply click on the end of an effect and drag it to make it longer. every time i try this i just drag the whole effect along the timelin what am i doing wrong?
thanks in advance and sorry about the punctuation im in a bit of a rush

Use the tool called crop. It on the left of the screen, just above the time line.

To clarify a bit, you are using the Move tool, which will move the entire effect. Switching to the crop tool, as Rockfilmers mentioned, will allow you to adjust the length.
