Readmore Functions

Last updated on 28 days ago

OK guys I have a new thing I'm working on. In my grims_blog infusion on my site, I have implemented a jQuery Readmore function. I have discovered after much experimentation and reading hundreds of posts and searches on the web, that jQuery will only output pure text (NO HTML - all formatting is lost) so my question is this. Is there anyway that a readmore function (by any method) will honor html within the text? I suspect the answer will be no but thought I'd ask anyway.

...in case you'd like to take a look.

Mostly used is a jQuery script executing a PHP file when triggered. The PHP-file output is put in a part of the screen.

I really don't understand how that can help me; I don't want a popup window or modal. I want the article to expand to read the rest. Please take a look at my blog. As it is all formatting is lost and it displays only text but it's all run together. It wo't allow line breaks or any kind of html formatting.

Search for innerHTML, should plenty of examples. But it will retain HTML from any source.

Thanks guys. Total complete success !!! Check out https://whisperwillow.net/infusions/grims_blog/index.php ... I simply modified the jQuery function I already had in place. I replaced "var myStr = $(this).text();" with "var myStr = $(this).html();" and other places in the script which called for 'text'... Granted there is no "Show Less" function but that's OK. I'm satisfied with what I have now.
Thanks again!

OK; so I was a little pre-mature guys. I do need some more help. I would like to add a "read-less" function to my existing function and have no idea how to go about it. This is my current function:
echo '<script>
    var maxLength = 500;
        var myStr = $(this).html();
        if($.trim(myStr).length > maxLength){
            var newStr = myStr.substring(0, maxLength);
            var removedStr = myStr.substring(maxLength, $.trim(myStr).length);
            $(this).append(\'<a href="javascript:void(0);" class="read-more"><br><div align="center"><b>...continue reading...</b></div></a>\');
            $(this).append(\'<span class="more-html">\'+removedStr+\'</span>\');

...and this is the very simple css:
.show-read-more .more-html {
        display: none;

...and this is the calling part:
<p class='show-read-more'>$body</p>

...I'm pretty good most of the time at modifying existing code but I have little experience with jQuery functions but I'm learning. Thanks in advance if you can help me.

I think you have to set the contents of more.html to none or set the diplay to none

I know what you are saying but I have no idea how to implement that or where it goes...
