Page Templates - Artist Profile

Add a "Read More" button to your Artist Biographies

Add a "Read More" button to expand your artist's biography with your Artist Profile Page Template

"Read More" buttons can be added to Artist Biographies on websites built with the ArtCloud Website Builder like so:

This is particularly helpful when an artist has a long biography that can obscure the art pieces or any other content below it. In order to add a Read More button, we'll need to modify the Artist Profile Page Template. We have an article on Page Templates and how they work, and another article on Artist Profile Page Templates in particular:

First, navigate to the Page Templates page in the Website Builder side of ArtCloud, and navigate to the Artist Profile Page Template's editing page.

If you have an Artist Biography block placed, hover your mouse over the block and click the blue cog wheel button.

The following popup will appear:

By clicking the toggle to the right of the popup, you can decide if you want to show full biography text or not. Setting the toggle to NO adds a "Read More" button to all of your artist biography pages.

NOTE: This change will be applied to all Artist Profile pages, and cannot be applied to individual Artist Profile pages.
