+
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)'''
