    Hi Guys,

    Seems like this gets asked a lot…

    How do you get rid of the “continue reading” link, that keeps showing up all ove the site, irrespective of theme (I’m using Canvas).

    Here is an example.

    http://www.gregedmunds.co.uk/submit-testimonial/

    Here it pops up after the testimonial form plugin (you’ll have to scroll down). operationally this is bad ju ju here, because it could throw a none savvy user just as they are about to submit an all important testimonial.

    Anyway it looks horrible and dysfunctional all over the site. It also seem totally random as to where it shows up. I’ve researched all over the web and there are millions of comments about of it…all of which seem to suggest hacking into the code. I’m no coder, so will need pretty blow by blow instructions if that is the case.

    I had hoped Infinite Scroll would take away the need for a solution, but apparently that is not working with the latest theme update??, so I’m stuffed.

    Any chance of a solution to this one guys?

    Hi, try the following custom css

    .read-more {

    display:none

    }

    you could also target specific pages if you wish – check out my 65 canvas tweaks article to show you how.

    Let me know if that works,

    Hey Jamie,

    The problem is I don’t know the first thing about how to update the custom CSS correctly. I’m willing to learn, but I don’t know where to look for the resource to learn from. If I need to start learning CSS/HTML so be it, but I was hoping not to. So the question is where can I find a step by step guide to updating the Custom CSS in WordPress Canvas, having generated the CSS code from a source and which assumes zero developer knowledge? I have done a lot of searching on the web (to much!) but then you find too many out of date things, most of which assume a level of code knowledge I don’t have. Sorry about the long post, but I need to work out what is the best path forwards for me in order to acquire the level of knowledge I need to get the job done.

    Hi Keith,

    Fully understand your view here :)

    I’m putting together a complete beginners guide to tweaking with CSS as we speak – trust me when i say with a bit of learning you will be able to do this! Once you understand a few simple basics it’s really not hard – and actually good fun.

    I hope to have something ready by the middle of next week,
    Jamie

    Cool – I’ll look forward to that

    PS Jamie wrote…”and actually good fun”

    Climbing mountains and drinking malt whisky is good fun…writing code, not so much!! :):)
