CSS Question

HTML page reloads automatically

I have html page given below :

$(document).ready(function() {
var showChar = 380;
var ellipsestext = "...";
var moretext = "Read more";
var lesstext = "Read less";
var lesshtml="";
var morehtml="";
var content = $(".more").html();

if(content.length > showChar) {

var lastChar = content.charAt(showChar);
if(lastChar == '/'){
showChar = showChar+1;
var c = content.substr(0, showChar);
var h = content.substr(showChar-1, content.length - showChar);

var lesshtml = c + '<span class="moreelipses">'+ellipsestext+' <a href="" class="morelink">'+moretext+'</a></span>';
var morehtml = content + '<span><a href="" class="morelink">'+lesstext+'</a></span>';


if ($(this).text()==moretext){
return false;

a {
color: #EA7813
a:visited {
color: #EA7813
a.morelink {
outline: none;

<script src=""></script>
<div class="more">
<p>Can't reach the light switch when you walk into a room? Need one added near the door? If you would like to have a switch professionally installed in a location where no switch currently exists, one of our vetted, <strong>local electrical professionals</strong> will take care of your <strong>light switch installation </strong>and make sure it's working smoothly.</p>
<p><strong>What's included:</strong></p>

<li>Requires existing, compatible network</li>
<li>No diagnostic, repair or parts are included with this service</li>
<li>No non-stock parts, materials or system repair / upgrades are included with this service</li>

What I want is to expand and shrink the body. The expansion works fine but when I shrink, the page reloads. I want to stop the reloading. In my click function the else part is never fired. Instead the page reloads. I want to stop reloading and run the code in else so that the body shrinks appropriately.
