This is particularly helpful when an artist has a long biography that can obscure the art pieces or any other content below it. In order to add a Read More button, we'll need to modify the Artist Profile Page Template. First, navigate to the Artists page in your ArtCloud Manager profile. Then, hover over the name of a given artist and select edit. edit rothko

A menu with various information about the artist will appear. To add an artist biography, scroll to the Biography section in the profile window. Enter biographical information about the given artist.Rothko Bio

After entering a biography for an artist, navigate to the Page Templates page in the Website Builder side of ArtCloud. Then, select the page templates button on the left.

By clicking the toggle to the right of the popup, you can decide if you want to show full biography text or not. Setting the toggle to NO adds a "Read More" button to all of your artist biography pages.

NOTE: This change will be applied to all Artist Profile pages, and cannot be applied to individual Artist Profile pages.
