Text Expander

Allows you to define areas of text that expand/collapse when clicked. It is an improved version of Dagon Design's Expanding Text-Plugin.

Website-elements which are collapsable help avoiding visual noise these days and give control to the user, what they want to see. Dagon Design developed a WordPress-Plugin called “Expanding Text” which enables a blogger to make any part of a post collapsable. I wasn’t entirely convinced with it, so I forked my own plugin.

Improvements compared to Expanding Text

  • You can freely choose a text to be shown in front of the expand-link (default is a double-arrow), which indicates whether the part is collapsed or expanded next
  • the expand-part will expand via a jQuery-animation. This looks a lot better, than having the text just appear all of the sudden.
  • You can add expanding text directly with a media-button in the article editor
