Hi everybody. In normal posts the readmore-link is visible as a button, but in a joomla module (newsflash) only a textlink is shown … I couldn't manage to change the style of the readmore in the module so far. Any ideas?
URL: cnc.ch10.serverline.ch
Newsflash modules: "Projekte" and "Sponsoring" on home page.
Blogpage with buttons visible: http://cnc.ch10.serverline.ch/index.php/ueber-uns/sponsoring-news
Thanks for your help!

Regards,
Reto

Hi,

Your module does not use the appropriate classes so the buttons will look like designed in Themler. I can suggest to add the following code under the Home >> Settings >> Additional CSS:

.readmore {
    display: inline-block;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    font-weight: 400;
    text-align: center;
    vertical-align: middle;
    cursor: pointer;
    border: 1px solid transparent;
    white-space: nowrap;
    padding: 6px 12px;
    font-size: 15px;
    line-height: 1.42857143;
    border-radius: 4px;
    -webkit-user-select: none;
    -moz-user-select: none;
    -ms-user-select: none;
    user-select: none;
}
.readmore {
    color: #fff;
    background-color: #428bca;
    border-color: #357ebd;
}

Sincerely,

Hi. I'm dealing with the same issue, but after adding the additional CSS it did not help.

I have other projects where it works fine. I'm using Themler v502 with this project.

The code Joomla uses for the button is <hr id="system-readmore" /> and Themler seems to not understand how to handle that anymore.

There is nothing in Posts or Blogs related to read more.
The read more works when I switch to any other template, so I know it's not something within Joomla.

Please advise.
Thanks.

After reading "several" similar posts, I found 1 that - with the screen shots - allowed me to "figure out" how to get to the add read more button - which should NOT be required! It wasn't for any project I created in the last few years with Themler. Why now with the latest version is it impossible to simply hit the "Read more..." in Joomla and have the button pick up the correct CSS?
Now, we need to "hunt" to find out how to make it work. And here is what I've done.
Since my read more is on the home page, it required that I go through selecting the "Post" in the content (within Themler) where I knew the read more button was assigned in Joomla to appear.
Then, I had to look for the "Add Control" - just does not make sense, but...
But there is no "Add Control" from the post. Instead, once you click on the Post, in the top menu look for "Add Control" - NOT Post Content.
Once you select "Read More", move your mouse to where the button should appear and "click" - just as you would with any "Add control".
That method is SO not intuitive.
Once you've followed the above, your "Read more..." will appear as expected.
Clearly the Themler developers do not use Joomla. If they realized how simple it "was" and how complicated it is now, they would not have made the change.
