Support » Theme: Button » [Button 2] Using the “Read more”-style of the original Button theme

    Hello!

    After a long time of searching the internet for a solution i give up. Apparently the thing I’m looking for is a little too specific. 🙂

    I had a blog on wordpress.com (https://sigisbackstube.wordpress.com/), that I now transfered to a self-hosted wordpress installation. The old blog uses the original Button-Theme, the self-hosted one (www.sigis-backstube.at) the newer version.

    After messing around with the theme for a while, I’m now quite satisfied. The only thing that’s bothering me, is the way the “read more” looks on a longer post.

    In the old version, there is no “read more” displayed, if you included the <!-more-> tag in the post itself. That is the look I’m going for. In the newer version the text/excerpt kind of fades out before the “read more”-button is displayed.

    Is there a way to change it, so it looks like in the original Theme?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  • Hi! We had intended to show the more link, but if you wanted to hide *all* more links, you could likely do so with this under Customize > CSS

    a.more-link {
        display: none;
    }

    I don’t necessarily recommend that though, because people might not know there’s more to the post.

    Thanks for the reply!

    You are right, I’ll leave the more links.

    Is there another way to edit the link, so the text color doesn’t fade out before showing the link? I think it makes reading the text kinda hard.

    Hi @sigisbackstube,

    Is there another way to edit the link, so the text color doesn’t fade out before showing the link?

    Sure, please try using this CSS to remove the text fade:

    a.more-link {
        box-shadow: none;
    }

    Does that help?

    Thank you so much!

    That was exactly what I’m looking for.

    You’re very welcome, great to hear @sigisbackstube 🙂
