Collapsible paragraphs

We would love an option that allows for lengthy paragraphs to have a collapsible ability that had a "read more" button. I see that you have a button for "read more" but this links to a website. We would rather it collapse the text to "read more" button. Thank you, Carolin Wood at Cornerstone Fellowship

I'd like to see this used more broadly and have accordion style sections. For instance, we are an arts organization and I'd like to have the "theatre" section open and all other sections closed until you tap or click on it. So if you want to see the "music" section you tap and that section expands.

YES please!!!!

 Yes, I agree that this is a great idea.

We have long newsletters and this would be so helpful!

The "read More" link does not conform to Accessibility standards, so a disabled user or their AI software is unable to know the context of the link and is not warned that it take them off the newsletter. Not good for companies with disabled persons in their organisation or on their list. Band for branding and reputation when you exclude people.

Someone just asked me about this today, and I wasn't sure if this was an option. Looks like it's not.

Yes! This would be a great feature! 

Can I do this now or is it still not viable?

Hi @Barakat_Arti. The Read More block will bring readers to an external link and we have not made any changes to this block to have it expand and show an entire article within the email. If there are any updates to share, we will comment on this thread.

Pleeeeeeeez develop a "read more" block with a collapsable paragraph instead of having to link to a web page.I'M NOT A PROGRAMMER! I send emails. Why force me to learn another skill set or use another platform or hire a programmer. Please fix this fault in your design.

What other platforms (beside Constant Contact) do folks use to achieve this?

It's very annoying to not have a read more button. The solution is to attach a document to a "read more" link that has the full article. Unfortunately, that opens the new full-text document in the same window and the user loses the full newsletter unless they are intuitive enough to use the "back" button.

2-1/2 years later THIS IS STILL BADLY NEEDED.

 

Why so hard, CC?

Amen. Please enable that feature!
