Is it possible to change the "Read More..." buttons into a styled text link - ie not be a button?
Thanks

I was just looking for the same thing...

...looks like the button is a background image, not a real button (ie the link is still a text link even with the button, not an image link) so you can just set all the button colours to be background color. Not quite perfect because I guess an empty white image is still being loaded, but much easier than fiddling with the css file

Thanks, Marcus for the suggestion, that's certainly a possibility. But wouldn't that affect all buttons? I only want to change the Read More..., not things like Login or Submit.

Did someone find a solutions for this? I'm looking for the same thing, without changing the other buttons.

This is very interesting.
I have the opposite problem.
I'd like to have the read more as a button in Joomla whilst is just a text link.
How can you do this?
Is this a joomla parameter to set?

I had the same problem, i removed the read more button by editing the template.css:Go to your template.css and look for:
/* begin Button */

Make sure your editor is adding correct code on adding read more.

I've had the couldn't get the button to show only a text link and it turned out to be jcomments plugin.
I just went to the plugin and changed the last option "Readmore Style" .
This could solve both problems if you install jcomments plugin :

Hope this helps

Merry Christmas to everyone!
