Where is the "read more" button on Minifrontpage news?

Hi - I have an older site that uses 2.2.3 minifrontpage news module. There was a setting in the backend of that version "Read more text". I have installed the new 3 minifrontpage news module on a local testing site. I couldn't find the "read more" button. I then purchased the pro version to see if it is included. I couldn't find that setting either.

Can you tell me how to include a "read more" button? thanks

    Ah we forgot about adding that feature. We'll add it in the next update. Anyway you can add it yourself by adding a template override.
    Simple add this code below anywhere you want to in the override file :

    Still need that feature.
    I am new to Joomla and could use some help with the overrides.
    I see how to select the module "Create Overrides" > Selected "mod_minifrontpagepro"> clicked on the new override > default-20210310-131909.php. Now I am not sure where to add your code? I tried adding it and nothing appeared in the front end. After adding your code, do I just "Save & Close" and the override should be visible in the front end? I would appreciate your help and thanks.

    Thanks for sending this helpful video.
    One more request - I would like to change the link colors on the the headlines (now they are black). Instead of black change to: #396e8e and a hover color should be: #97002e. Can you send me Custom CSS code snippet that I can add in the module? Thanks again

    The screen shot I sent you was from a development local site.
    The live url is: https://www.katesbarlow.com/- The minifrontpage news is old (2,2,3) and I am planning on replacing it with the new minifrontpage J3 - just testing it first.
    thanks
