Showing Excerpt Of Job/project Description On The Job Roll Page


I’m working on a project on Yii 1.1.4.

It’s a small freelancing site for Graphics designers.

Client post job/projects and it appears as a job roll on the front end for freelancers.

What I want to achieve is The job roll page will show the excerpt of a job description with a read more button on the page. When someone click the read more button the entire job description will appear.

As the oDesk’s job roll page does currently.

What’s the best way to do this?

I guess I’ll need to use jquery for that.

Does Yii have anything helpful?

I hope I made myself clear.
