Read More About

Read More About allows users to add links in a story using a shortcode to provide addition reading material about a subject. Works great for large topics that can’t all be explained in one post.

Price: $0.00

Give context to your readers

Are you writing about a complicated subject? Want an easy way to give readers that context with other posts or links? Read More About makes it easy for you to do that in a section on the side of your post so people can learn more about the topic you’re talking about.

Customize the Read More About section

From using a light or dark theme, to placing it on the right or left, you have a lot of options for how to display the Read More About section in your post or page. Plus, you can add it as a shortcode, block or even a widget.
