Mailchimp HTML details function


#1

Dear all,

I’m trying to use Mailchimp to set up a newsletter and want the format to be that there is one paragraph of text and then a read more button that expands and reveals the rest of the text without any form of pop-up or referal to another page.

Fore the read more section I’m using the following code:

Read more

dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text dummy text

It works spendidly when I’m working in my template, but when I go into preview mode or send a test email you cannot click on “read more” as it looks like normal text and all the text is shown.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks a lot!

Hi @Marlene_Johler,

Might not be the best place to post on mailchimp issues but i ll try to give you an answer.

Mail design in hard. Like very hard. Most of the basic css doesn’t work on most of the mail client.
Mail design is very quickly painful and frustrating when you code by hand.
My advice :
Use a tool dedicated
I usee Beefree.io
It’s free and it’s the webflow of emailing design.
You can design on beefree, and then export and import on mailchimp easily.
Hope this helps,

Thanks a lot for your help, I’ll try that.
Just out of interest, where would be a good place to post on mailchimp issues?

@Marlene_Johler, great, let me know !
At the moment there are no real places for side app questions on the webflow forum.
I guess it’s more a mailchimp forum question…
Anyway we are always happy to help :slight_smile:
Have a nice day,
