Changing the default "read more" link

This function tells WordPress to remove the default more which looks like this: […], and replace it with a link.

Open your functions.php file, and paste the following code inside the php tags:


// Changing excerpt more
function new_excerpt_more($more) {
global $post;
return '… <a href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) . '">' . 'Read More &raquo;' . '</a>';
}
add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');
