    How do I add “read more” to bottom home page excerpts? I have “continue Reading” on the top and they work properly.

    thanks,

    I see “continue reading” on the bottom grid posts, too – it’s just underneath the social sharing links. Personal preference, but if I were you I’d disable those on the homepage as it looks kind of crowded.

    @Dorian_Speed, Now I see them… ** Jim puts glasses back on**.  And, Yes it is a bit crowded down there but I still see ellipses in brackets “[…]” on the bottom post excerpts. Where would I go to edit those?

    I would try this:

    or possibly this:

    I think that theme uses the homepage grid loop, right? It’s probably possible to change something in the home.php file to make this work but I’m not sure what it would be.
