For me it’s not just the best read more plugin (and i tested all the others) the service from Edmon is just unbelievable good. Besides the plugin is really so simple to use I nevertheless had a special question, contacted him and within a few minutes he told me exactly what to do and even sent me the custom code so a newcomer like me was easily able to handle everything. GREAT plugin GREAT developer – can definitely recommend!

Great customer service, great plugin (Read more plugin)

Easy to use this plugin, but more importantly, great customer service.

Plugin easy to use install, and works great! (I ordered the READ MORE plugin)

More importantly, there was a billing issue where my card was charged twice during the checkout process.

Developer got back to me in less than a day and resolved without any hassles.

Much appreciated – two thumbs up!

Thank you!!!

Quick and Easy

Couldn’t be better.
Does exactly what it promises quickly and super easy.

Read More plugin, works beautifully, solved my prob

This plugin is perfect for that long content. You don’t want to cut it short, and you definitely don’t want to force the next item(s) way down off the visitor’s screen. This plugin adds a “read more” button wherever you like; and when they click or tap it, the remainder of your article scrolls gracefully into view. And there is a “read less” button that can be used to hide it again. Simple and effective!

The free version works fine, but I went for the Pro version which allows more configuration and decoration of the buttons, and a whole raft of other effects. Had a question and Edmon responded very promptly and helpfully
