Reviews

Perfect!

Great plugin. Simple and efficient. Even works on very old versions of WordPress as well as the most recent version.

Best of plugins for expanding text

I tried some other plugins before. This makes this plugin special:

After expanding text the show-more is hidden and the show-less is below the expanded text. Doing little CSS this plugin is easy to style.

Thanks for that. 🙂

Works perfectly

I need a solution to expand text with the read less at the bottom of the content. Most of other plugins add a read less button on the fold, under the intro text and above the rest of the content. That forces users to scroll up in order to display less text. This plugin is perfect for my needs.
