Read More Without Refresh


Include more content at your Pages/Posts/Products/Custom Post Types, without affecting users experience and get advantage of its SEO!

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!

Yes, simply it does what it says on texts, group images etc. If there was a selection for transparent Background color (in settings, to be transparent not white or other color) then it will be a perfection! Till now i "cheat" this by erasing the number of #color on background... Tnx George

It just works. If you want a simple "read more" text button to use in different themes without hassle, this plugin just does the job.

Hello, and thanks for this plugin. The plugin does work in all basic applications and because it actually works. That's why I rated it 5 stars. Suggested feature requests: I'd give it 6 stars if as a courtesy, the shorcode was an easy copy/paste from somewhere in the dashboard. Or even a link in the dashboard to quickly access the documentation. I'd give it 10 stars if all HTML such as DIV tags or FORM tags, even H# tags could be included between the start and top shortcode. Imagine the possibilities! Your plugin is appreciated and works well with the most recent version of WordPress. PS. Please keep your WP plugin page updated so that it doesn't have the warning posted that it hasn't been tested with the latest version of WP. The plugin is worthy!
