"Read Me" button on a newsletter article

This is a very simple basic question.  I am just putting together a newsletter in a different format and instead of the old way of copy/pasting the entire article into the block for someone to read, I want to create a block with just the first couple of sentences and then a "Read More" or "Full Article" button.  My question: Is there a template for this (like WordPress has) OR do I simply create the block and enter the first couple of sentences and then insert the button and then upload a Word doc with the full artcile and link the Word doc to the button?  If so, seems like I would have to design the Word doc to look snazzy and not just a place white Word doc.....

Thank you,

Lincoln

Re: "Read Me" button on a newsletter article

Hello @MeghanK2,

 

Welcome to the Community and thank you for your inquiry! It appears you are using our second-generation editor. Depending on the template you have chosen, we do have blocks that are formatted to look like what you have described. However, you would have to replace the dummy text within with your own text. Additionally, if the full article you are linking to is not on a webpage (or cannot be hosted on one) you would have to upload it to the Library and then link it in the block manually.

 

I would argue the document does not have to look snazzy but at least have a logo or some kind of branding image for consistency. I would also save it as a PDF file so when they click on the link it will open up in the browser they're using instead of downloading to a folder on their computer (which happens with Word documents).
