The “more” block is used when you want to include a short introduction of piece of content on a page or post. It will help create separation from the rest of your content.

Step 1 – First go to the page where you would like to add the more block. Click on the plus sign icon in the upper left hand corner. From there, select the Layout Elements from the drop down menu. Click on More.

Step 3- You can edit the text to be anything you would like, such as “continue” or “See full content”. Please note you have to add a button block or use html code to direct the user to the full content. Once you’re finished editing your text, save your page.
