I would like to change the text "Read more ..." in the module S5 News Display 2, but I can not find where to change it.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Hey Artur,

The text is a default Joomla read more text so if you change the read more text for Joomla it will change it for all your articles and this module too.  But you can just edit the text on this module by doing a little code change below.  NOTE: This won't suit multi language sites but you can hard code in a language here if you are only using one language on your site:

Open up:


Look for:

echo '<p class="readmore s5modnews"><a class="s5btn" href="'.$item->link.'">'.$item->linkText.'</a></p>';

Change the below to whatever you desire:


For example:

echo '<p class="readmore s5modnews"><a class="s5btn" href="'.$item->link.'">More Information</a></p>';
