It is necessary to draw the attention of the user to particular content or an isolated action, process or sub-process. When it is a text description, however, it can sometimes irritate the customer. Assume that the client does not want to read the description, he just wants to see the products. To do this, the client must scroll down the page with a description, and see the list of products.

The Fade Description extension for Magento 2 can solve this problem in a very delicate way. With this extension, you can hide most part of category description, and the user can read the full description in a single click. In addition, you can configure and customize the size of the visible part of the description for each category. The Fade Description module will definitely save space on the page since these descriptions will become apparent only when the client needs them. With the Fade Description, your website will be more user-friendly.
