    When a particular blog post exceeds a specific number of characters, the_excerpt function automatically applies [...] as a form of "clipping" off the post content. However is it possible to actually edit the text that is displayed, so that rather than having [...], there could be something a little more useful such as Read Full Entry?

    Here's the best way I've seen to modify the_excerpt: A nifty little plugin http://guff.szub.net/2005/02/26/the-excerpt-reloaded/
