Hi! You can accomplish what you're wanting using a little HTML wizardry. Here are the steps:
  1. Highlight the word or words you want to link, such as "Read more."
  2. Click the link icon in the toolbar and create the link as normal. It will at first be underlined.
  3. Click on the HTML button in the toolbar (it looks like this: </>) to pull up the code behind the text box. The link you created with look something like this:<a rel="Read more" href="the URL here">Read more</a>
  4. You will want to add a bit of text to force the link to not underline. Make it look like this:<a style="text-decoration: none;" rel="Read more" href="the URL here">Read more</a>
  5. Click the Save button in the HTML pop-up after doing so.
  6. Now highlight the words "Read more" again and choose a font color from the toolbar, if you'd like to select a different color than the default.
If you need help along the way, let me know!
