Read More link not working on event summary block

Recommended Posts

Website: https://friendsofminnesotaorchestra.org/

On the home page, I have a summery block for News and Upcoming events. News is drawing from a blog page and Upcoming events is coming from an event page. If I allow excerpt the option to add a read more button doesn't show up. But the read more link shows up on the News page. I'm not sure why it is working on some and not others. Help? I would like a read more button on the upcoming event summary.

Hi, can you check Read More is enabled? Click on edit on your summary block -> Design -> Read More Link. Try and let me know how it goes.

The Read More Link option doesn't show up. Even when I select Excerpt to show, it doesn't appear. I do use the Lazy Summary Plugin but on another summary on the page, the read more link shows up. Does the read more link not work on events?

Event Summary doesn't support Read More Link, if you need to add a read more, you can add it in Excerpt

Or add this to Website Tools (under Not Linked) > Custom CSS to fake read more link

div#block-yui_3_17_2_1_1698177917931_6440 {
	.summary-title a:after {
    content: "read more";
    position: absolute;
    bottom: -40px;
    left: 0;
    color: var(--tweak-summary-block-secondary-metadata-color);
    font-size: 13px;
    font-family: var(--body-font-font-family);
}

.summary-content {
    position: relative;
}}
