Ticket #19451 - Read more button category description


I need to add a “Read more” button and show only the X first words/letters of the description of my categories because they are way too long otherwise.
Is there a way to do that ? Should I edit the code ? Where ?

Thanks a lot

Hi, Corentin POSTIC.
You need the file /themes/alysum/templates/catalog/listing/category.tpl you can find category description there.
You can cut the description in this way

{$category.description|truncate:100:'...' nofilter}

Thanks for your quick answer, but if I truncate it, there is no way for the user to see the whole description, for example by clicking on a Read more button ?

I gave you a path to the file, you can modify it as you need
