I don't know if I fully understand your question regarding that PHP file you mentioned but you can make more words appear by modifying your main-style.css file. I changed the height from 100px to 200px but you can set it to whatever works for you.

.service-box .service-box_txt {
    height: 100px;
    margin-bottom: 10px;
}

Open in new window

and change it to

.service-box .service-box_txt {
    height: 200px;
    margin-bottom: 10px;
}

Open in new window


When I made this change more words appeared that where cut off when the height was 100px.

Jason, I tried your suggestion but it didn't make any difference.  I cleared by cache and even viewed using private browser.  What I want is for the amount of text which displays to be more.  The first two boxes (single family and duplex condos) do not show the entire text area.

Some other CSS rule may be overriding it. Try adding !important to the height...

.service-box .service-box_txt {
    height: 200px !important;
    margin-bottom: 10px;
}

hooray!  You solved this issue in record time.  I was on chat with template monster for 1 hour 37 minutes and they could not figure it out!  I finally disconnected the chat.
