+
Set it on your menu item:
 
+
# Go to Menu management
If they are not already there, in your template folder:
+
# Edit the menu item
# Create a new folder called 'html'.
+
# Go to tab Advanced Options
# In that folder you create a folder called 'com_content'.
+
# Set "Show readmore" to Show
# And in that folder you create the folders called "category", "frontpage" and "article"
+
# Set "Show title with readmore" to Show
 
+
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:
+
<source lang='php'>
+
<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>
+
</source>
+
 
+
Change the line
+
<source lang='php'>echo JText::sprintf('COM_CONTENT_READ_MORE_TITLE');</source>
+
into
+
<source lang='php'>echo JText::sprintf('COM_CONTENT_READ_MORE_TITLE', $this->item->title);</source>
+
 
+
The “Read more” link should now look like this:
+
'''Read more: (Article title)'''
+
  
 +
Set it on Article management Options:
 +
# Go to Article management Options
 +
# Go to tab Articles
 +
# Set "Show readmore" to Show
 +
# Set "Show title with readmore" to Show
  
 +
No need to set it on the menu items now.
