Some people want to add the article title to the readmore link. To achieve this you can use a template override.

If they are not already there, in your template folder:

  1. Create a new folder called 'html'.
  2. In that folder, create a folder called 'com_content'.
  3. And in that folder, create three folders called "category", "frontpage" and "article"

Then locate the following files:

  • (joomla)/components/com_content/views/category/tmpl/blog_item.php
  • (joomla)/components/com_content/views/featured/tmpl/default_item.php
  • (joomla)/components/com_content/views/article/tmpl/default.php

Copy the files to their respective locations in the template's html file:

  • (yourtemplate)/html/com_content/category/blog_item.php
  • (yourtemplate)/html/com_content/featured/default_item.php
  • (yourtemplate)/html/com_content/article/default.php

Open these files. Towards the bottom of each of these files you should see something like:

<p class="readmore"><a class="btn" href="<?php echo $link; ?>"> <span class="icon-chevron-right"></span>
        <?php if (!$params->get('access-view')) :
                echo JText::_('COM_CONTENT_REGISTER_TO_READ_MORE');
        elseif ($readmore = $this->item->alternative_readmore) :
                echo $readmore;
                if ($params->get('show_readmore_title', 0) != 0) :
                echo JHtml::_('string.truncate', ($this->item->title), $params->get('readmore_limit'));
                endif;
        elseif ($params->get('show_readmore_title', 0) == 0) :
                echo JText::sprintf('COM_CONTENT_READ_MORE_TITLE');
        else :
                echo JText::_('COM_CONTENT_READ_MORE');
                echo JHtml::_('string.truncate', ($this->item->title), $params->get('readmore_limit'));
        endif; ?>
</a></p>

Change the line

echo JText::sprintf('COM_CONTENT_READ_MORE_TITLE');

into

echo JText::sprintf('COM_CONTENT_READ_MORE_TITLE', $this->item->title);

The “Read more” link should now look like this: Read more: (Article title)
