I am sure you will find plugins for this. Sorry, I don't know if such an effect will ever make its way to my To-do list - it is too specific, IMHO.

I thought so. Do you have any idea what plugin this might be or area of terms I should search for? I don't know what to call this.

Yep exactly.

does anyone know if there is a plugin for this?

As it stands the excerpts that say read full text button could potentially do something like this.

I simply did a Google search for jump to text plugins for wordpress, there is probably much more out there. It is a pretty cool feature, not sure how much it might slow a site down though.

Also found this. Thats also SEO related.

Hey Dark... No these aren't what I had in mind. All I was wondering is if the "Read More" button could have some dynamics to it that would have faded a little bit of the text it is cutting off and when you hit read more it fades back in to the whole post. See what I mean?

That is quite different from the functionality in the MSNBC page, which doesn't rely on "Read More" at all. The MSNBC page loads the entire content, but just hides the lower section of it, unlike the Read More feature, which actually avoids loading the whole content.

You can give it a shot, but that would mean integrating the front-end with Ajax - an additional layer of complexity. As I said, this is too specific for me to put on my to-do list for features, so it is not something that you will see from the theme natively.
