I bet you're all getting sick of my questions :p

I am trying to slightly change the layout of the BLOCK_MAIN_NEWS. In particular i want to swap the "Read More" link with the "Tags". Essentially i want users to see "Read More" before they see the tags.

Using the Template Edit Links feature i have attempted to identify which template needs editing. I have settled on NEWS_PIECE_SUMMARY.tpl as being the template that i need to edit, but i cant work out which piece of code relates to it. I have searched through all the other templates that have an effect on that block and haven't found any clues. I've looked at the following templates;
  • STANDARDBOX_classic.tpl
  • TAGS.tpl
  • STANDARDBOX_light.tpl
I would also like to change the font and size of "Read More".

I've hit a bit of a dead end so any help would be great, thanks again.

Thanks bob, you're very patient with me :)

btw, i managed to solve this by disabling tags all together…i didnt really need them. It looks much tidier now!
