    I added the shortcode (using Classic editor) to hide / unhide text in my post and it broke my sidebar, it pushed it to the bottom of the page. There are not many options in the free version to tinker with it, so I can’t do anything to fix it. Pity because it works well for the purpose it’s created, but I can’t have a broken post layout.

    I love this plugin. I have had it active on one website for about 6 months now and have not noticed any weirdness. It works great. I wish the plugin had a paid upgrade so I could be more sure of its future existence and quality.

    Great plugin, the others are TOO heavy. Thanks! Suggestion, if I may? Wish “Change Naming”/” could also be achieved via the shortcode, in my instance, I am using the plugin to hide/show song lyrics, wish I could add the song title for each instance. Also, I wish that in addition to “Border Bottom”, there was an option for a full solid border – Button like style Again, great plugin, THANKS!

    I’m a user not a developer, and Read More Without Refresh has been a really excellent plugin for me. It has revolutionised my writing – I can get the main points across succinctly and tuck details away in a read more for someone who is interested in more. I have been using the Classic Editor and am now trying to migrate to Gutenberg. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but I have tried entering [read more] xxx [/read] into the code editor in a Paragraph Block, a Classic Block and a Shortcode Block, but so far without success. Can anyone help? Thanks.
