Using the Drupal Read More Module to Enhance Interactivity on Websites

By using the Drupal content management framework, users will be able to create a fully functional website and easily add or edit content on it.  Standard Drupal sites however follow the general designs of blogs.  This means the full content of a page is published on the home page of the Drupal site.  For some users who want to add more content on the home page of a Drupal site, they can tweak the display settings for the content page.  In this way, only portions of a published material can be displayed on the home page so that other modules can be added.  

A drupal read more link therefore would be very useful for this purpose.  The read more link can be appended at the end of a summarized content pointing to the full version of the page.  This link instructs the user to follow the page if they want to know more about the content.  By embedding a read more link, the Drupal site would be more interactive and user-friendly.

Some administrators however encountered problems regarding this functionality.  In their deployments, the Drupal read more links will not display properly.  In some cases, the links will be totally invisible on the page thus losing valuable user engagements.  

Developers and advanced users of Drupal CMS created a separate module for the Drupal read more functionality.  It can now be set as a standalone tool which can be easily activated on the administrator interface of Drupal.  The read more module significantly helped other administrators in developing a highly interactive website.
