Support note:

In most cases support requests concern some not obvious or special situations. So to solve most of poblems either Joomla superadmin access or akeebabackup of your web-site is needed. Please, be ready to provide it so it's possible to debug your problem at a localhost.

AutoReadMore

thumb 3dcover with disc Compatibility: Joomla 2.5Joomla 3.0
  • Automatically adds "Read more..." link after a configurable number of characters or words.
  • Will not break HTML or break the article in the middle of a word.
  • Preserves formatting (optionally) and fixes unclosed tags if php-tidy or php DOMDocument is installed at the server
  • Works on the Front Page optionally
  • Extendable to be compotible with 3rd party extensions on the community requests
  • Configurable to ignore or to work for specific categories, articles
  • Code is commented so that you may read through the code and add your own features if you like.
  • Allows to place article images to the intro text to have your blog illustrated
 

Settings

Most settings are self-explaining. If you meet some problems with understanding the settings, please ask me.

Joomla 3.0 settings Joomla 2.5 settings

Troubleshooting

If AutoReadMore plugin strips not only intro text (expected behavior), but also full text (what a shame!), you have to determine the full article context to exclude and make the plugin to exclude it. How??? Watch this video. http://youtu.be/8NC517als0c

Or read below:

This may happen, then the plugin conflicts with another extension. Surely you must inform the developer to let one fix the issue. But to quickly disable the plugin only for an extension you have to use Contexts to exclude option. The debug option allows to output context to the browser so you don't need to investigate the code.

I.e. you have to disable the plugin for the EasyBlog component. Enable the debug option and visit the page you need the plugin to be disabled. Get the context and paste to the plugin Contexts to exclude textarea.

Tips and tricks

Make blog thumbnails look nice (using bootstrap)

If your template includes CSS bootstrap framework, then a use the following options to get nice images:

Images class: img-rounded pull-left margin-h-8

Custom CSS code: .margin-h-8 {margin:8px;}

Here is a result example before and after applying the options:

Thanks

Kolian Alcoholian hired me to redevelop the plugin for his web-sites. So he sponsored it.

Thanks, to the developer of the original plugin, surely.

The extension is delivered together with all available languages at the release time. Translations, added or updated later, can be found here as installable packages. Language updates are available over normal Joomla extensions update feature.

Please, help with translation to your language! Just register here https://webtranslateit.com/en/projects/3395-autoreadmore/project_locales and translate. The installable language packages are generated every hour.

Well, i installed the plugin and it seems to work perfectly, but on the homepage i expect it to make thumbnails of the article images, but whatever i do, it does not work.

The plugin doesn't generate resized images. There is a number of plugins which do this. The plugin may add class names to the intro images. But the class names may be used to generate thumbnails buy such plugins. I.e. extensions.joomla.org/.../9982 catches images with smartresizer class and makes thumbnails.

So you set AutoReadMore to assign a class to the intro images and use a plugin to generate thumbnails.

So if you need to RESIZE images (create thumbnails) you have to use AutoReadMore in conjunction with a thumbnails plugin. You can also set a CSS rule to scale the images, but it's a bad way.

You can strip HTML tags. If you need HTML, only want to strip images, use some wrapper tag with a class for outputting the introtext and use CSS to hide the images.
Stripping exactly img tags is not possible.

You CANNOT remove the IMG HTML tag. You can either remove all HTML tags, or hide IMG tags using CSS.

Quoting Nidzo:
Great plugin but it was hard to find it. Why is it not on Joomla Extension Directory?

Because of the Russian intervention I was at war and the web-site was down for some time. JED unpublished my extensions. А нынче, дорогой @mail.ru, я планирую на ДжЕД опубликовать платную версию под другим именем, а тут будет для тех, кто не поленился и нашёл бесплатную. Вот такой подлый план. Я ж каратель, мне можно.
