How To Add The Read More Function

The read more function is great when you have a lot of text you want to display on your donation page but you don’t want to overwhelm your supporters with too much text when they first load the page and take away from them actually donating.

To add the read more function to your text block all you need to do is:

  1. 1
    Log in to the GiveEasy platform and navigate to My Appeals > Manage Appeals and click edit on the relevant donation page to launch the page editor.
  2. 2
    Once in the page editor hover over the relevant text block you wish to add the read more function to. You will see a pen icon just to the right of a settings cog in the top left corner of the element. Click the pen icon.

    Click the spot where you would like to add the read more function (ensuring your cursor is in this spot) and click the plus icon beside the text block.
Add Elements
  1. 4
    From the add elements bar click the read more icon as seen below:
Add Read More
  1. 5
    A pop up will then appear allowing you to set the read more text. By default this will be “Click to Read More…” but you can change this if you wish.

In the pop up you will also need to set if you only want this read more function in this text block to only appear on mobile. It is our recommendation that you unselect this checkbox and set whether it appears on desktop/ mobile at the text box level.

Click confirm once you are done.

    Once the read more element has been added to your text block add the copy you wish to display after the read more in the section below the read more label.
