404 Not found issue on Read More link – FIX
By default the ‘read more’ option requires the ‘single-portfolio.php’. In case the ‘singe-portfolio.php’ does not exist, it uses ‘single.php’. If the ‘single-portfolio.php’ is missing, then make a copy of your file single.php as single-portfolio.php. If the single.php file does not exist in your template folder, then create a new file as ‘single-portfolio.php’ with the generic code that is commonly present in most WP themes.
