I've created a CPT in my WordPress site. In this CPT I have the content element (which is the default WP content) and want to make it expandable, I mean, while viewing the CPT I want it to only display a few lines of text until you press the view full content or something similar, all this inside the post view. Like in the image below:

There might be two reasons for your problem

  1. You are using <!--more--> tag inside your content . If so then remove it.
  2. While querying post you are using the_excerpt method , if so then change it to the_content .
