Static Load More Content Plugin With jQuery - Show More Items

A simple jQuery script that can be used to hide part of your content (such as a long list) and reveal it when the user clicks the Load More button.

How to use it:

1. Supposed that you have a long content list as follows:

<div class="items">
  <div class="item">Item 1</div>
  <div class="item">Item 2</div>
  <div class="item">Item 3</div>
  <div class="item">Item 4</div>
  <div class="item">Item 5</div>
  <div class="item">Item 6</div>
  <div class="item">Item 7</div>
  <div class="item">Item 8</div>
  <div class="item">Item 9</div>
  <div class="item">Item 10</div>
  <div class="item">Item 11</div>
  <div class="item">Item 12</div>

2. Create a Load More button to display next N items.

<div class="buttonToogle" style="display: none;">
  <a href="javascript:;" class="showMore">+ View More</a>

3. Load the latest jQuery JavaScript library at the end of the document.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>

4. The main JavaScript (jQueryScript) to enable the Load More button.

$(function() {

  // items to show
  var increment = 3;

  var startFilter = 0;
  var endFilter = increment;

  // item selector
  var $this = $('.items');

  var elementLength = $this.find('div').length;

  // show/hide the Load More button
  if (elementLength > 2) {

  $('.items .item').slice(startFilter, endFilter).addClass('shown');
  $('.items .item').not('.shown').hide();
  $('.buttonToogle .showMore').on('click', function() {
    if (elementLength > endFilter) {
      startFilter += increment;
      endFilter += increment;
      $('.items .item').slice(startFilter, endFilter).not('.shown').addClass('shown').toggle(500);
      $('.shownLength').text((endFilter > elementLength) ? elementLength : endFilter);
      if (elementLength <= endFilter) {
