Is it possible to set a custom Read more text for each article in Joomla? I would like to be able to somehow set a unique text for some of the readmore links (added using <hr id="system-readmore" /> in my articles.

Example: Read more..., Keep reading... or Explore...

Language overrides won't work, because that would change all the links. I know I could create a button and link it to another article, but that's not an ideal solution either.

In WordPress you can use <!--more Keep reading--> to set a custom text for a particular button, does Joomla have a similar option (or another way of solving this)?

Any ideas?

Yes is posible, go to each article, from here you can see a Tab called Options
at the bottom you can see the field Read More Text, see the screenshot.
