I wanted to get rid of the ‘read more’ button in this Envo theme. It was overriding the WP settings for showing the full article.  Here is how to do it:

  • In your Word Press admin console go to Appearance>Editor
  • Edit content.php
  • go to line 26, change ‘the_excerpt’ to ‘the_content’
  • update the file and refresh your page.

I also hid the read more button. Go to Appearance>Cutomise>Additoinal CSS, add this to hide the button:

.btn-lg {
