Hi there,

is it possible to add a "Read More" to summaries showing events that directs you to the event's detail page? For blog summaries, Squarespace offers that capability.

Best,

Markus

@tuanphan Yes, I could. But I don't want to do it manually. It should be automatically there as in case of a blog. 

Can you share link to page page where you added Event Summary?

  • Solution

because you need to create new elements, do it with javascript (requires business/premium)

  • add a code block on the page with your event summary and write a script in it (you could also inject a script into the header using the pages Settings > Advanced, but it would be in the head so you have to wait for the page to be rendered)
  • locate the event summary blocks you want using a selector by class name (find the classes by inspecting the source). loop over them.
  • retrieve the link to the event from the summary title
  • create a link element, set the href to the link you just got, insert it into the DOM wherever you want it

no business/premium? add it manually, or use CSS to add in an ::after pseudo element to write the words "Read More" in, then find an existing link (e.g. the title) add in a pseudo element to that too and then stretch it over the entire summary item using absolute positioning (in the same way that bootstrap does a stretch link for example)

Should be enough to get you started.

Hi, I am wondering the same thing but not so good with code. I want to add a read more link under the first event summary on the page, because a lot of people don't know to click on it for more details.

I could add it to the page itself, or the excerpt, whichever is easier. 

Please note I have a link "read more" in the excerpt now but I don't want to have to manually do this for all of them. 

Thanks!

Yes, either in the summary or a button below the summery on the page it self. 

 

Thanks

Thanks! So I added it and it looks great, however it doesn't link to the event page. What am I doing wrong?

Remove it & use this new code

body#collection-63568b0531815f2ea12da3eb .summary-title-link:after {
    content: "Read more";
    font-size: 14px;
    color: var(--paragraphLinkColor);
    font-family: Work Sans;
    font-weight: 400;
    font-style: normal;
    letter-spacing: 0em;
    text-transform: none;
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 20px;
    left:0;  
}
