In our site we have a page for comments, some get quite lengthy.  How can I just show the first sentence and then provide a link(?) to show more if the reader wants to continue?

Hi there William8563

We do not have an element that has that capability, although I can definitely pass along the suggestion. For now, this would need to be something you add via HTML if you can find the coding for it.

Highlight the text your wanting to hide and select a background color that matches the text color.

You could also convert the long comments to a pdf document, leave the first couple of sentences then create the >>read more link that would open the whole thing.
