    Is there an easy way to do this? I am specifically trying to do it for the excerpts generated in a template I’ve created. I’ve been romping through the theme files but am having no luck. Many thanks if you can help.



    open up loop-index.php located in the folder “includes” and search for following code:

    the_content(__('Read more','avia_framework'));  ?>

    Change the read more text as you like.


    Yea, I had tried that before and have now tried it again but the buttons still say “Read more” instead of my edit to “Go”. You can see it here:

    I’ve emptied cache and what not but still not showing. Thanks for checking it out Dude.



    The code Dude provided is correct but needs to be in /includes/loop-page.php not loop-index.php

    Let us know how you get on.



    Hi guys and thanks for the replies. I have made this edit before James to no avail. But have now done it again but still nothing. You can see here:

    So, it’s strange to me. I have done a search in all of my files for “Read more” and made changes everywhere possible but still nothing. Is it cached in the database somewhere (my browser cache has been emptied of course)?

    Thanks if you can help.





    open up helper-templates.php located in the folder “includes” – search the file for the string “read more” and replace all occurences with your text. I can’t give exact instructions because I don’t know with template function(s) you used (portfolio, blog, etc.)


    Thanks Dude! That did it!


    Glad that I could help you :)
