    Hey Bob, loving the new AMS and got it working sweet. A request - is it possible to add a 'read more' link/button after the text cuts off - say where I've marked the red x below:

    Sometimes newbies to forums don't realise that clicking the image or the header text will open up the article.

    With thanks as always

    Current trends in blogs show those "read more" links are no longer being used, as most users by now are used to clicking on titles/images.

    The other thing is that having a 10+ "read more" links on your site all pointing to different articles is probably bad for onsite SEO.

    Google will see multiple things saying "read more" but they all go to totally different content. It's better to use your relevant text title to be the main link to the article. The users will figure it out eventually :)

    For that thumbnail specifically, I'd find a way to make sure there's a complete sentence that doesn't cut off, just to give a user more info that's complete. G is big on user experience right now. Anything we can do to increase user experience/activity is a huge plus for us.
