I have many snippets with a "read more" link, and I'm looking for a way to have the same selectors for all the snippets. I thought that jQuery's next could work:


$(document).ready(function () {

    $(".readmore").click(function () {

        $(".readmore").next().slideToggle("slow", function () {






Visible text 1<a class="readmore">Read More 1</a><div class="more">Text to appear 1</div>

Visible text 2<a class="readmore">Read More 2</a><div class="more">Text to appear 2</div>

Visible text 3<a class="readmore">Read More 3</a><div class="more">Text to appear 3</div>

<style>.more {display:none}</style>

Unfortunately, text for all snippets appears when clicking on one "read more" link, instead of just the next element. What's wrong with the code above?

You should change

$(".readmore").click(function () {



$(".readmore").click(function () {


so the next() selector in the click() event function is only applied to the currently clicked element instead of all elements with the class readmore at the same time.
