On the page Article of my website at http://www.janobaghoumian.com/article.php I want to have different article published in a short form [Shows just the title and a the first sentence of it followed by ... and read more] as soon as user decides to read it it expands in another page. This way I can show all article without scrolling so much. Is there a solution on Yola widgets for this? If not any other way of having this possibility?

Why don't you set up a separate page(s) with your full article and on your snippet set up a link to the full article page

Hi Negar,

You can see an example of what Peter described above on this page. It was created simply using Custom Panel Widgets, the Text Widget and each article links to a separate page with the full article.

Alternately you can take a look at our Tumblr widget to see if it would suit your needs.

Thanks Peter and Laura,

I am not familiar with Snippet, how do I use that?
I tried Tumbler widget but it shows all the article which occupy a lot of space, any way to use this widget the way I described?

Sorry snippet was just a terminology.
Set up your page with the title and a paragraph of your article(s) and create a link with the read more to a separate page you would have created with the full article. So you will set up seperate pages for all you articles and on the main page create links back to the full article, as Laura had shown with her sample web page.
