Is there a way to override files form the layouts/joomla directory? I need to change the look of the Read More button. Found its php in layouts/joomla/content/readmore.php. Could I copy this file to my template folder and change it?

  • Let me guess you wanted to get rid of that chevron? Ha ha

Yes, absolutely. You can override the layouts by copying the file to templates/YOURTEMPLATE/html/layouts/ using the same path as where you found the file.

So in your case, copy the file currently at layouts/joomla/content/readmore.php to templates/YOURTEMPLATE/html/layouts/joomla/content/readmore.php.
