Hello Shopify Community,

I'm currently using the Align 1.5.2 theme for my online store and I'm looking to enhance how the collection descriptions are displayed. Currently, the full text of each collection description is shown, which makes the pages quite cluttered.

I would like to implement a "Read More" button that would allow visitors to expand the description if they are interested in reading more. This would help in keeping the collection pages more visually appealing and less overwhelming.

Could anyone guide me on how to add this feature? Is there a specific code snippet or plugin that works well with the Align 1.5.2 theme? I currently have the descriptions hidden because that add to much to the page https://www.riptideaquaculture.com/collections/wysiwyg-coral
Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated! .

Thank you!

unfortunately this did not work after quite a bit of trying. it was not really functional in that it would not allow the read more or less buttons to work.
