Expandable Text Field in Content Block Sections

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Wondering if it's at all possible to add an expandable / read more button to paragraphs in Squarespace's pre-made content block/card sections (sorry not sure what these are called).

I've added a screenshot below to show what I'm referring to. I'd ideally like to be able to add a read more button at the end of longer paragraphs to keep all text length consistent. As per the ones on the left — I've just done this as a text example to show what I mean. The ones on the right is how it would look without this.

Open to any other ways this could be done also / any other blocks that could do this better.

I know I could possibly just re-create these sections as normal text blocks and then put an accordion or something similar, but I'm just trying to keep it as simple as possible for the client to edit.

Note, I haven't made the site as of yet, just planning out and used a random default template for the example below.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂

Thanks!

Hi @bangank36

Thanks for your reply.

I'm unfortunately unable to get this working. I've followed your steps but it doesn't appear to be working.

You can see the site here (pw: 345) 
About page > 'Meet Our Team' section at the bottom, 3rd row down, second from the left (Deb) — I have put the 'Read More' half-way through this.

Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Andy
