You can override the "Read more" text in the admin section.

In the "Extensions" menu, choose the Language menu item.

Then choose "overrides" and click "new".

You can search for the constant you want to override in that screen.

Help is available on that page and it links to: https://help.joomla.org/proxy/index.php?option=com_help&keyref=Help34:Extensions_Language_Manager_Overrides_Edit

  • When searching, search by "value" to find where "Continue Reading" is used.

  • Also, it is possible that the "continue reading" text is part of a module or component that you installed, where you'll need to check with the template or configuration for that module or component.

  • Do you have a link to your site? There are so many places that could be depending on what and how you've set your site up. Also, if you have access to the linux shell root of the site, you could grep -r 'Continue Reading' . to find where that value is set.

When you create your articles you have a tab called Options,
from here, at the bottom, you can see the Read More field for your
custom text.

Best Regards!
