WP show more


This plugin hides the text that is defined between the simple Shortcode. By clicking on the user-defined link, the hidden text becomes visible. It works via a Shortcode and can be placed everywhere!

Usage: [show_more more=»TEXT» less=»TEXT»] Content [/show_more]

You can use some parameters like:
– more=»show more»
– less=»show more»
– color=»#0066CC»
– list=»»»
– align=»left» | «center» | «right»
– size=»120″


  • show more deactivated
  • show more activated (after click)


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):

[show_more more=»show more» less=»show less»] Your hidden Content [/show_more]

Of course, you can customize the text «show more».
