I manage a Drupal 7 site with custom theme and I have no FTP access and was not involved in development but I have to manage the content and have every right on the web surface.
I created some content based on the type article (which has a Body of "Long text and summary" field type and of "Text area with a summary" widget), and a view to show this content.
In the view display (created both Block and Page), Format is set to "Unformatted list" (Force using fields is disabled at the settings), and Show is set to "Content | Teaser". Check the image for the settings.
With these settings, the content on the editorial view is fine for me: title, a picture, a text and a read more link. Check the image for the result.
Unfortunately, "Read more" does not appear on the page shown for the visitors. Not even not shown, it cannot be found in the html source code.
Note: Read More Control and Read More Link modules are not installed.
Is this behavior intended? Is there a bug in a module? Did I miss something, and there's a way to show "Read more" on the page for the visitors too? Can you please tell me how can I manage to show a "Read more" link to the visitors with the same view settings? I neither understand why modifying the Block style implies the modification of the Page Display, i.e. I modify one of them (like the displayed fields), the other display is modified too automatically.
I already have a workaround, but it is not a solution. What I've done is that I changed the setting and checked the box "Force using fields" at Format: unformatted list and manually added the title, image, text, a manual texted link to read more and a horizontal rule.
