Expand text / PageBuilder

Hi everyone, I’m using PageBuilder for this site http://nodesjournal.com/
I’d like to add a read more / read less under each single article in the index list.
See for instance: http://nodesjournal.com/nodes-15-16/
Do you know how I can solve this without messing around with the html code in the text edit?

Anything helps.
Thank you,

    Hi Marianna

    Thanks for reaching out.

    You could perhaps try a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/show-hidecollapse-expand/. There are a few others to choose from that do a similar job.

    Hi Andrew, thanks for your message.
    Do you know if this will work with PageBuilder though?
    Not a developer, just a designer messing around and helping out.

    Yes, it should. You can use it inside an Editor Widget.

    The problem is that inside the PageBuilder text widget I used to build my page I basically dont have a text editor (beside regular-bold options). I can only see a visual / html switch and a couple of other options, so no regular wordpress editor
    (which, if Im not wrong, actually includes a read more option to select).

    Thanks

    The more option there refers to splitting a post on archive pages. You click the Read More link and get directed to the single post.

    Here is a simpler option https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-showhide/. The shortcode details are covered on the plugin page.

    Quick demo using the example shortcode provided at https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-showhide/: https://demo.siteorigin.com/corp/sandbox/.

    Hi Marianna

    I’m going to change the show/hide demo page now for some other testing we’re busy with. Hope you’ve made progress with your page :)

    Thank you, that worked perfect!

    Super. I’m glad to hear you’re making progress. Thanks for the update.
