..... also with Google :-)


Only one link per page

This plug in only works with one show/hide icon per page. it is very primitive. at the very least you need to have multiple show/hides per page to be of any use.

Simple but limited and awkward.

If all you require is one hide/show element per page, this plugin will serve your purposes.

Should you require multiple, let's say a dozen hide/show elements per page, it becomes a little laborious having to define a unique type for each shortcode. E.g. I resorted to define the types as "a", "b", "c" etc. but this can become cumbersome if you need to remove or reposition hide/show elements.

No jQuery animation is applied. The content abruptly hides and shows.

Overall, this plugin is too limited for my purposes and the awkward and ultimately unnecessary use of types is a key deterrent for me.

I've opted for this plugin instead: https://wordpress.org/plugins/azurecurve-toggle-showhide/

Exactly what I was looking for.

Being an enthusiastic amateur (with no coding skills) it took a bit of time to get my head around the setting up of the ‘show/hide’ text and changing the ‘type’ for each new occurrence.

Had it all up and running in about 40mins.

Many thanks – will use it often.

I have been using this plugin for some time and I must say it's simple to use, works reliably, and is elegantly developed. The developer takes great strides to support the product, including a very useful github page with useful implementation steps and advice.

Simple and functional!

Excellent. It works without problems.

The only problem is that this plugin is not easy to find. Because of the name. When you ask for a "show hide" I can not find anything. If the name has changed in the "WP Show Hide" this plugin would have far more users.

I have been searching for a plugin which would allow a simple 'See more' tag, expanding text beneath the extract. This is perfect, simple and also works great on mobile. Thank you!
