is it possible to replace this icon with a more obvious “read more” link?
or to at least make it permanent (rather than have to hover over the featured page for it to appear)?
alternatively, is it possible to ensure that when the text on the featured page runs out it is followed by “…” so it clear that there is more to come? otherwise, it looks odd when you just have an incomplete word
Yes, I can see that that’s the case in your demo but that’s not how it is on my website – I’m not sure why.
I have some additional CSS relating to the header and top menus (and of course relating to the + sign per your post above) but even when I get rid of the code it doesn’t bring back the “…” on the featured pages so I don’t think the additional code is the reason.
