Joomla CMS: Register to Read More

What?
This article is a quick note on how to change your Joomla CMS "Read More" to "Register to Read More" all without hacking away at the Joomla core.

Why?
Well a few hacks may be necessary because not only do we want to restrict read more content (full text) and just show intro texts to public but the default Joomla instructions do not include the search engine. I need the Joomla built-in search engine to also ignore permissions so that the article can still be indexed in global search engines such as Google.

How?
It's been difficult to search for the right words but heres the method to restrict the introtext to the public and fulltext (read more) to the registered users:
  1. Login to the Joomla Administrator site
  2. Go to Articles and click on Options
  3. Set Show Unauthorised Links to Yes
  4. Set Show Intro Text to Show
