Read More Without Refresh


So you want to show more content but not affect users experience?

I got you covered!

My plugin hides the predefined text, through a shortcode and based on your choice, leaving the remaining one visible to the search engines.

Your readers will be also able to read more content by pressing the ‘Read More’ button, without having the page reloaded.

Once you press “Read more” button, it will expand.
They will also be able to hide it again by pressing the same button, which would have been converted to ‘Read less’.

It works via a shortcode and can be placed everywhere!

You can change its colors through its settings menu!

Simple usage: [read more] Your long text [/read]

Feel free to try its frontend demo here, to take a look at this YouTube videocast or to verify its Gutenberg compatibility.


  • Read More button Deactivated
  • Read More button Activated (after click)
  • Wp-admin settings page


All you have to do is upload the plugin within your WordPress Plugins menu and activate it.

Then, you can add the shortcode everywhere you want (pages, posts, widgets etc):

[read more] Your hidden text here [/read]

You can, of course, change “Read more” and “Read less” texts to your preferred one, along with other settings in ‘RMWF Settings’ wp-admin menu page.

In case that you have any support inquiries, feel free to contact me.


Is it complatible with every WordPress version?

Yes it is!

What about Gutenberg compatibility?

Yes it works!

The Settings do not show the shortcode necessary to use this plugin.

CONGRATULATIONS. This is the only "show more" plugin that actually works, without a lot of frustrated fiddling, but there again; the test rig that I'm working on is rather unique. My WordPress site is being built entirely using the CSS Grid: and as such, the bottom of the screen is ambiguous to say the least, but because the (set point) and (close point) are the same with this plug-in: then the (content-text) expands, and then closes properly without any issue. [ AND! ] - { LOUD-DRUM-ROLL } - You can have as many 'read-mores' on the grid constructed pages as you want. Which is something else that the others fall over badly when trying to achieve. I can report all this with confidence, .. because that's what I've finally discovered and worked out after several long fruitless hours of working intently with other, .. shall we say: more fancier plug-ins. This ones simplicity makes it stand head and shoulders over the rest. The only issue is that the (close-point) is above the expanded text-content, but there again when you think about it; why would any user want to close the expanded text anyway? - They've read the content and are moving on through your site. (It's not an issue as such: just a casual observation.) Cash sent: congratulations again for a plug-in well written. Hope it helps people - Jessica.

Автор не поправляет, поправлю я... Зайти в папку с плагином и в файле readmoreoptions.php Заменить функцию function read_main на следующее: function read_main($atts, $content = null) { $atts = shortcode_atts(array( 'more' => get_option('rm_text'), 'less' => get_option('rl_text') ), $atts, 'read'); mt_srand((double)microtime() * 1000000); $rnum = mt_rand(); $new_string = '<span><a onclick="read_toggle(' . $rnum . ', \'' . esc_html($atts['less']) . '\', \'' . esc_html($atts['more']) . '\'); return false;" class="read-link" id="readlink' . $rnum . '" style="readlink" href="#">' . esc_html($atts['more']) . ' </a></span>' . "\n"; $new_string .= '<div class="read_div" id="read' . $rnum . '" style="display: none;">' . do_shortcode($content) . '</div>'; return $new_string; }

The plugin worked great until I updated to version 3.1, when the plugin has been automatically deactivated by WordPress after the update. Here is the error message: The plugin read-more-without-refresh/index.php has been deactivated due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header. How can this be fixed? Thanks for the hard work.
