I am trying to get a readmore link after every single blog entry on a Joomla 3.2.3 Page.

I already edited components/com_content/views/category/tmpl/blog_item.php to take out the php if ($params->get('show_readmore').

But entrys with just little Text are still missing a read more link. The position of the read more link seems to be set by a fixed number of characters to limit the blog-text length - which is an option I have not found (yet?).

  • Hope you did a template override for this. The part you deleted was the check for the switch to display the read more-text. You could have achieved this in the admin backend with turning on 'Show "Read more"' in the Options part of the menu item. This way it is a little easier and update safe. – lars k.

I found the answer. There is another file controling the frontpage blog.

After deleting if ($params->get('show_readmore') in components/com_content/views/featured/tmpl/default_item.php too I got the result I hoped for.

  • I hope you are aware that editing this file is not update safe, so perhaps you created a template override instead... – lars k. Feb 11 '15 at 16:54
