Lightweight Read More Plugin For jQuery and Bootstrap - doLessMore

doLessMore is a read more/read less jQuery plugin that truncates multi-line text by height and appends a toggle control to allow you to reveal or hide the truncated content.

How to use it:

1. Make sure you have jQuery library installed in your project.

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

2. Include the jQuery doLessMore plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="lessmore.js"></script>

3. Truncate a long block of text if it is higher than 100px.

<div class="dolessmore">
  <p>Your Long Content Here</p>

4. The required CSS styles.

.dolessmore { overflow: hidden; }

.dolessmoreblock { position: relative; }

.lm-control {
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
  height: 20px;
  background: #fff;
  text-align: center;

.dlmexpand { padding-bottom: 20px; }

5. Customize the height option which will trigger the text truncating.

    lHeight : 100

6. Override the default toggle icon in the JS.

if(this.autoHeight > this.options.lHeight){
    // override icon classes here
    .append('<div class="lm-control"><a href="javascript:void(0)" class="glyphicon glyphicon-menu-down"></a></div>');
