How to remove "Read more" button from sliders

  • Curious how to remove the “read more” button at the bottom of the sliders. All of my test appears on the site, so there is no reason to read more. Furthremore, the button points to the main page of my site anyway, defeating the purpose.

    Thank you.

  • Comment out this line in element-boxes.php to remove Read More.

    <!– <span class=”read-more”>“><?php _e(‘Read More’ , ‘discover’); ?></span> –>

    Sorry, but a total n00b here. What does “comment out” mean?


    You will need to go to Appearance–> Editor
    Click on element-boxes.php on the right
    Find the line <span class=”read-more”>”><?php _e(‘Read More’ , ‘discover’); ?></span>

    Add <!– to the beginning of the line and –> to the end of the line to comment it out.

    It should look like this in the end <!– <span class=”read-more”>”><?php _e(‘Read More’ , ‘discover’); ?></span> –>

    Update file.

    Thank you, wpuser! That workes like a charm. Still need to figure out how to remove the “Not Found

    Apologies, but no results were found for the requested archive. Perhaps searching will help find a related post.” – doesn’t appear to be on the same editor page you mentioned…

    Modifying theme files is NOT recommended – all of your changes will be lost when the theme is updated. Instead you should be making any theme file changes in a Child Theme


    ok so i created my child theme and it’s operational. i still don’t understand how i remove the button from the slider. i do have firebug and another webdev tool installed but i am unfamiliar with how to use them. help ; )
