Thank you so much for using our theme and thanks for your question too. We designed on the such way that, user can click on image or title to redirect to the single post. Usually user click on image and title for it. So, based on design approach we remove the READ MORE button and only add …. at the last of the excerpt. If you really need READ MORE there, you have to cusotmize the theme. Make a child theme of the theme and customize the theme as your need. If you are familiar with WordPress codes, you can easily solve this issue. If you need any help please write us, we will mentor you to solve the problem.
