First of all, let me welcome you to the Joomla forum.

As you have found, the build in "Custom HTML" module does not support the "Read More" button.

So there are a few ways you can get past this.

One, you could continue to use the "Custom HTML" module and manually add a "read more" button to the text ... and link that button to the article that you want to show when the person click's the "read more."

So, you would need the beginning of the article in the module, and then the rest of the body of the article in a standard Joomla article.

But, you could also use a Joomla extension that DOES support the "read more."

I have often used this extension to place an article in a module position:

http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... -embed/498

Another one I have used is this one:

http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... mbed/10799

Using the first link I gave you, it installs a new type of module ... where you can give this module an article number, and it will display the article in a module position ... including the "read more" option.

It is quite useful for things like what you are trying to do.

I hope that helps, and again, welcome to the Joomla forum.

SOLUTION

In Your Custom HTML module click HTML button to view HTML source code and insert at the end:

Code:
<p><a class="readon" href="link to Your article or other thing"> Read more…</a></p>


Pros and Cons:
+ easy
+ looks like other Read More buttons (class="readon")
- manual links

Hi There... Is this code:

<p><a class="readon" href="link to Your article or other thing"> Read more…</a></p>

Entered where you want the 'readmore' to appear? Or as you say 'at the end' of the custom HTML?

If so, how do you control the location...
I suppose you can show only as much article as you want, place the 'code' and then the link will appear and take you directly to the article... I am thinking this is what you have devised for this...
