Better Read More


Use WordPress built-in tag to hide text on pages.

This is particularly handy for a mobile site using pages with extrememly large content. This content will let you put a “more” link in the page and will then insert a javascript more button in the page itself which will show and hide the remainder of the content on the page.

Can be used with any theme, including sites that use multiple themes for mobile/desktop and it works with Any Mobile Theme Switcher.

Destroying embed videos size

When enabled, after user clicks read more ,any possible embed video gets its height resized, becoming very small, and that is ruining the entire post. Other than that i guess it works fine, on articles without videos in them. Deactivated until a possible fix for this comes up. Have a nice day.
