Javascript/Show More Content


The first thing I would like to do to this is be able to insert html tags into the .main div like <section> or <div> so I can apply the css propery text-indent to the <section>. But if I try to add any sort of html tag, the script breaks, and I cant use it. Is there something wrong with the jquery to where this isn't possible?

Hi Cody,

Thanks for your question.

Creating and inserting HTML tags into the DOM using jQuery is as easy as this:

//create the element
var section = $('<section></section>');
//add it to the DOM

Here is a JSFiddle Example:
