Moreish

Read more stack

Minimise content and allow the user to reveal sections of interest in your RapidWeaver / Stacks projects

Sometimes it is nice to keep a little back

Whether it is not to overwhelm your web page visitor with too much information all at once, or you want to add some interaction / engagement to your site, a 'read more' toggle stack is a great way to achieve it.

Take a look through the examples below to see just some of the various ways that this mighty little stack could be set up.

Standard usage

Simply have Moreish truncate a lengthy section of text, allowing the user to toggle it open if desired.

Notice too that the option to fade out text has been enabled here too - which is a useful visual indicator that there is additional content to be viewed.

These examples show the use of a Source-styled button in the first example and a link styled button in the second.

You can also create custom buttons or use the built-in support for Foundation and Bootstrap frameworks too!

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, sapien platea morbi dolor lacus nunc, nunc ullamcorper. Felis aliquet egestas vitae, nibh ante quis quis dolor sed mauris. Erat lectus sem ut lobortis, adipiscing ligula eleifend, sodales fringilla mattis dui nullam. Ac massa aliquet.

Toggle position

It will generally be most desirable for the toggle button to be at the bottom of the truncated content but there will be some use cases that might benefit from it being at the top. In addition, the button can be left, right or centre aligned.

Revealing images might be a good use case for positioning the toggle at the top (and right). e.g. in this 'Guess the Beatle' interaction.

John Lennon!

Collapse sections

A powerful setup is to have Moreish collapse the content of full sections. This could be especially useful to create an interactive Call to action section for example.

An intriguing heading...

With some hidden information or detail about a deal or services that are on offer. It's an interesting way to draw attention to certain content.


Utilise symbols

Symbols are a good option for the button to provide a visual indicator of what is going on. They can be used on their own or alongside a text component.

Other options

A simple feature that can be effective is to switch the text used for the initial state. With this approach the user is greeted with a different message after returning to the initial state.

Another option is to start with the content expanded.
