Do you ever build a website with pretty short content using articles? Sometimes the content is fine at that length, sometimes the client simply hasn’t provided you any more and isn’t going to.
In those instances it seems pretty silly to have a read more button that takes you to another page, simply to read the same content again.
This tutorial shows you how to turn off the read more button in Joomla! It also shows you how to ensure the titles aren’t links to avoid users from still visiting that page.
