Customising the ‘Read more’ links

When the summary of a page or article is displayed on the home page or a category page, there is a link underneath the summary to the full article. By default this link contains the text ‘Continue reading’, but if you’d like to use a different phrase you can set your own default in the config file.

If you want to change your sitewide default, use the read_more configuration key. The setting is commented out in config.yml; just uncomment it and set the link text:

read_more: Read on

Note that the link text can still be overridden on a per-page basis with the ‘Read more’ metadata.
