Javascript Show/Hide tweak

Posted on 2014-03-25
Last Modified: 2014-03-28
I have a simple javascript "show/hide" snippet I am using to show more content.

Use clicks "see more" and content drops down. He clicks "hide" and the content slides back up and away.

Problem is I would like to hide the "See more" once its clicked and show it again when "hide" is clicked.

Here is the Javascript:

<script type="text/javascript">

Open in new window

And here is the Div that is being shown/hidden:

<div class="slidingDiv">Content of showhide div</div>

Open in new window

and here are the two, identical show and hide links which obviously have the same basic affect:

<a href="#" class="show_hide">(see more)</a>

<a href="#" class="show_hide">(hide)</a>

Open in new window

Any thoughts on modifying this to hide the See More would be great

INterestingly, while it's working on your code site, it's not working on the actual site. I have replaced the script in the header, basically overwriting the original version that I posted and it's not working. The "See More" is not appearing at all, despite being vieeable in the source code.

It should be a jquery conflict because the original code worked, and this is but a minor variation of that. I have attached the entire source code as an attachment since this is a shopify file and it's nearly impossible to view the dev site.

You have this in your css - stylesheet.css line 513

.show_hide {
    display: none;
