Read more button block

At the end of the post excerpt you can place a “Read more” text/button to allow users to easily go to the respective post and read it. 

This block allows you to make stylish “Read more” buttons.

Now, you can add the read more button block by clicking any “+” sign in the website canvas. This will open up a block inserter. Search for “Read more”, then click on the block in order to add it.

The moment the block gets added, you will notice a toolbar on top of it, with several basic editing options. In a previous chapter, we explained the common editing options for all blocks. In the case of the post tags block, here are the ones that apply: positioning, duplicate, insert before, insert after, copy style, paste style, paste style and link, and remove block. The copy and paste styling options are available with the PRO plans.

The moment you select any block, a block editing panel will open up on the right-hand side. It always has three options: content, style, and advanced. The possibilities inside vary from block to block.
