Toggle long descriptions via "show more" and "show less" links

4.8 of 5 stars(8 reviews)

Improve mobile experience

On mobile devices space is limited. Prevent customers from having to swipe past text to see more products or important selling points.

Fundamental UI/UX enhancement

Allowing customers to toggle long text is fundamental to a good user experience. No site should be without it.

Reclaim above the fold space

Above the fold space is precious. Long text shouldn't displace other conversion driving content like products, specs, and social links


About Toggle Description

A Fundamental User Interface Enhancement That No Site Should Be Without

The Toggle Description app allows you to manage the appearance of long text on your site by adding customizable "show more" and "show less" links to text that exceeds a maximum number of words or characters. When users click on these links the text will be shown or collapsed.

Having the ability to toggle long product and collection descriptions greatly improves your site's user interface —especially on mobile devices— and allows you to reclaim the precious above the fold space with more conversion driving content.

Does not affect SEO!

No coding required.

Already Using Tabs or Accordions, Size Charts, Etc..? No Problem!

Toggle Description can collapse text anywhere, even within description enhancements generated by others apps.

Effective Ways to Promote Your Site and Drive Sales With the Reclaimed Above the Fold Space

Here are some suggestions on what can be done with the reclaimed above the fold space:

  • Show related products or promotions
  • Show links to size charts, product specification, etc...
  • Show more pictures
  • Make social sharing buttons more prominent

I contacted support regarding using on collection pages.

I added a class to the collection page description

like class="product-single__description" and it worked.

However, It would be really nice to toggle this feature on/off for collection pages independently from product descriptions with a different character amount. Support's response was this.

To work on the collection page enter the following into the Description selector field:

.collection-description

Do you want this to work with the product page too? If so remove the HTML

with the product-single__description CSS class from around the collection description and set the Description selector field to:

.collection-description, .product-single__description

The character/word count you enter will apply to both the collection and product pages. We are working on separating this and adding an explicit option to "toggle collection" and/or "toggle product" description.

Thank you for the feedback. We're always here to help our customers via phone or email and we pride ourselves on our quick and thorough support. We responded to your support request immediately and even followed up 2 days later but never got a reply. I suppose our email was marked as SPAM?

App does a great job at shortening descriptions on the product page and it can also shorten descriptions on the collection pages with a small piece of code implemented which the support team were great at guiding.
The only downside is you can't have one description length for your product pages and another for your collection pages. If you only want to show the first 30 words it does this on both pages.
Will be keeping a close eye on our metrics to see if Google penalises us for shortening the text or if they pick up on all the text/content that is beyond the truncated snippet.
