I like the continue reading link, but I would like it to be at the end of the excerpt. Today it is always on a new line. Is there a way to change this behaviour?

Instead of:
Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum.

I would like
Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum Lorem ipsum. Continue reading >>

I think that link has a CSS property applied to it that makes it fall to the next line. Can you please post a link to your site?

Hi,

 

There is no CSS fix as its not a bug or something that needs fixing, its working as intended.

 

As far as I am aware, if you wish to have the Continue Reading link, connected to the text in your excerpt, you will need to make changes to the core files, something we do not support or recommend. This layout can not be achieved with CSS as your excerpt text will be different lengths almost every time and will look odd if we use negative margins etc...

 

Therefore, I think the best course of action would be to contact one of our Pros -
