Advanced jQuery Read More v1.1

Dynamic Read More plugin for jQuery

(c) 2016 David Whitworth (david@whitworth.de)

Released under the GNU General Public License (GPL)

Description

A small but versatile jQuery plugin that allows you to truncate specific sections of your content and then creates a link to toggle the full content.

Setup

  1. Copy the files from the css and js directories to your corresponding asset directories.
  2. Include the advanced-read-more.css or advanced-read-more.min.css in the <head>
<link href="css/advanced-read-more.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

  1. Include jQuery (if you haven't already) followed by advanced-read-more.js or advanced-read-more.min.js in the <head>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/advanced-read-more.min.js"></script>

  1. Initialize the plugin below the included scripts, like so:
<script type='text/javascript'>
    $('body').readMore();
</script>

Or with custom options...

<script type='text/javascript'>
    $('body').readMore({
        showLines: 5,
        linkCaption: 'expand...',
        linkCloseCaption: 'reduce...',
        linkHint: 'Click for more information'
    });
</script>
