TOPIC: PB and Read More

PB and Read More 30 Jun 2018 22:47 #48819

I have an article, started as a regular Joomla article then switched to PB (my usual path). Client asked me to insert a read more as the article was quite long. Under Articles-->Options I have Show "Read more" and "Show Title with Read More" set to SHOW.

However, when I insert a read more it doesn't do anything. I see the read more syntax in the backend, however, on the frontend, only the part after the read more is displayed.

www.ckdev.info/drgary/index.php?option=c...icle&id=4&Itemid=144 - the article beginning "Then in September..." is the part after the read more. The intro part is missing. Show Intro is set to Show.

Hi
have you used the read more addon from Page Builder CK ? you must not use the read more into an editor if you have switched to PB

I looked and looked but just didn't see it! :blush: I split the article into 2 and put it between the 2 pieces, but it's hiding everything above it rather than just the small portion of the article I want hidden. I'm not really sure how the CK version of Read More works.

Hi Ced

Yep that's what I used second time around, but that's what made the top part of the page (above the Read More) disappear.

please do a test :
1/ create a new article with a simple text block
2/ switch to PB
3/ add a readmore block from PB
4/ add another text block under the read more

check if it works on frontend (using a blog layout for example)

Ah-ha! I see the issue. I had the menu set to a single item, not a category blog. Didn't realize that was required. Now it works thanks Ced.

Darn it - spoke to soon. OK, if you look at www.ckdev.info/drgary/index.php?option=c...blog&id=8&Itemid=144 it shows the Read More in the correct place. This is a Category Blog done with 2 separate PB articles (Meet the Team and Kevin & Laurie).

On initial display it's all good, but, clicking the Read More makes the Meet the Team hidden text appear (as it should) but makes the Kevin & Lauri article disappear entirely. I guess this would be standard Joomla actions too. Is there a way to use Read More in this instance or should I hide the text with an Accordion?

why is your read more into an accordion ?
if you have an accordion, then you have not made exactly the test that I have suggested. What have you done ?

I did make the test as you said and it worked. However, in this situation it doesn't work (see my post of 12:40 yesterday). So I ended up replacing the Read More with the accordion to get it working.
