Now go to "Design" --> "Edit HTML". (if you are using Blogger new interface go to "Template" --> "Edit HTML").

Click on "Expand Widget Templates".

Find this:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<div expr:id='&quot;summary&quot; +'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb(&quot;summary<>&quot;);</script>
<div class='readmorecontent'><a class='readmore' expr:href='data:post.url'><b>Read more &#187;</b></a></div>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'><data:post.body/></b:if>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;static_page&quot;'><data:post.body/></b:if>

Save your template and refresh your site. you can see auto read more has removed from the template.

But still you can see "Read More" button in your blogger posts? Then find this and remove it (again some part of the code can be different,according to your template.):

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<div class='readmore-wrap'>
<a class='readmore' expr:href='data:post.url'>Read More</a>

Save your template again. You are done.

    1. Do you mean change the words 'read more'? Sure you can change it on blogger layout > blog posts (edit)
      you can see the words 'Read More' is editable there.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this! I was really aggravated with the read-more stuff on my blog, and I never would have figured out this without your help!

  2. Hello ,
    How remove on this

  3. This did not work for me. My coding is slightly different, but I had found the area with the expr:href='data:post.url' title='Read More'>read more» code and tried to replace it with what you said above and I get the tags not closed properly error msg. /Sigh. I'd really like this read more gone.

  4. Thanks! I am using your template and made some changes to it πŸ™‚ Thanks for this πŸ™‚ it was kind of frustrating to see the "Read More" link but the readers can't click. Only a text appears that they should click the title. Many readers are not patient enough to wait for that text to appear πŸ™‚

    I'm not a programmer so I don't know a lot of html stuff πŸ™‚ just using the page break from blogger to change the read more πŸ™‚ Thanks for this blog post πŸ™‚

  5. I love you buddy πŸ™‚

    Thanks for this wonderful tip ... ! Bless ya and keep helping people like us πŸ™‚
