Hello,

Which one you don't want to show?


Steve Watson comments:

Thanks Hariprasad I found this

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

and i have just removed the Read more bit

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

If you know a more efficient way let me know.

thanks

May be you are searching for


function trim_excerpt($text) {
return rtrim($text,'...');
}
add_filter('get_the_excerpt', 'trim_excerpt');

I think that is broken

Ryan S answers:

To remove the '[...]' or '...' and replace with a Read More text, try this


function rs_new_excerpt_more( $more ) {
global $post;

return '<a href="'. esc_url( get_permalink($post->ID) ) . '" class="blog-continue-reading">Read more &rarr;</a>';
}
add_filter( 'excerpt_more', 'rs_new_excerpt_more' );


Of course to remove '[...]' or '...' completely, use this instead

function rs_new_excerpt_more( $more ) {
return '';
}
add_filter( 'excerpt_more', 'rs_new_excerpt_more' );



Hope that helps

If you remove the "read more" part, all you return is a non clickable link, why return anything at all?
