Have been looking into it and apparently this has been an ongoing issue. The good news is you can open the “read more” links in a new tab (found that one out myself) the bad news is I still haven’t found a way to fix it. I also just noticed too that there are no read more links to actual posts just “…” which aren’t linked at all (though I guess they assume you’d just use the main link for that).
It has been a bit frustrating trying to figure this one out but still chugging along. If anyone knows more of WP/BuddyPress then let me know.
