'Read more' to reveal text - coding required

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

My photography website is comprised of many project which start with a block of text. This text is often quite lengthy and on mobile devices, takes up the whole screen.

Here's an example: https://www.josephjohnherbert.com/home/tea-pickers-of-nanu-oya

I'm ideally looking for a clean way to hide a chunk of the text, which can be revealed by clicking 'read more'. Rather than a button, I'd prefer it to just be text.

The solution posted in 2022 by @Beyondspacedoesn't seem to work with the current 2023 Squarespace engine, throwing up the code error 'missing {'

I'd love to diagnose this issue myself, but I'm rather clueless when it comes to coding, beyond basic HTML.

Many thanks

Joseph

Can you follow the step 1: adding a text and a link "#read-more" for it in your paragraph?

You need to place the code into Footer code injection, not the custom CSS
