Read More [...] issue WordPress


Hi Guys

The read more symbol [....] is looking like this [&hellip in Safari and Firefox but looks ok in Chrome

I've done various troubleshooting steps but am now a bit confused. I've shot a 30 second video to explain my issue further.

Any help is greatly appreciated

It is pretty simple.
Open your blog template and check where the data is coming from.
If it is coming from any function then it must be having some code.

Or provide us the code here.

Hello Sabby

I have uploaded a fresh copy of the Catalyst theme framework and that is fixed my issue.

It was the latest Catalyst upgrade that broke it so I have rolled it back to a previous version.

Its my pleasure.


Hariprasad Vijayan answers:

Are you using wordpress more tag(<!--more-->) or some other function to limit content?

Hariprasad Vijayan comments:

If you are using more tag, try the following method

<?php the_content('[...]<br /><br />Read More &raquo;'); ?>


EricssonDesign answers:

What happens if you put your code you were using in the normal functions.php?

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

Just put it at the very bottom of functions.php
