[resolved] Problem with Post Excerpt (3 posts)

    I want my site to show excerpts of my posts and found a (WordPress.org support forum) suggestion to change the content.php, which I did. However, now instead of having "Continue Reading" or something similar at the end of the excerpt, I have this message:

    ?> ( __( 'Continue reading →', 'cakifo' ) ); ?>

    How do I get rid of that, and add the Continue Reading or More linked text? Oh, and in my dashboard settings, the option for excerpt is chosen, but apparently disregarded. Thank you.

    My url is http://wrightoutloud.com

    Thank you someone!

    Hi Wright,
    it looks like it is a code error.

    Check your child content.php file and locate line 78. Make sure the code looks exactly like this:

    <?php the_excerpt( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">→</span>', 'cakifo' ) ); ?>
