Show Read More only on long posts

How do I show "Read more" only on long posts? When the post is short and I'm showing the entire entry on the main page, its annoying to click on "Read more" and realize that there is nothing more to read.

I can't hide the "Read more" site wide because it is useful on longer posts.

I am using a premium version of AmpersFilm

Our themes don't provide the setting for deleting the Read More button. But you can change this by editing the code on the 66th string of the theloop.php file. This file is located in the following directory:

Besides, you can change length of excerpt, on the AmpersFilm --> Layout page in the 'Length of content in the feed' field in the dashboard of your website. Or you can hide a part of a text by adding the Read More tag on the post editing screen.

The Read More button is useful on short post because it links to the inner page where you can see additional information such as comments, tags and related posts.
My knowledge of editing PHP Is very limited

I only want "Read More" to show on posts longer than the "Length of content in the feed" setting under Ampersfilm --> Layout.

If the post is shorter than the "Length of content in the feed" setting, now "Read More" should be shown

Is this possible?

Unfortunately, we don't provide any services, paid or unpaid, for editing themes for individual users.
