    On the pages of my website (www.theiphoneinsight.com ) I want a Read More "button" after every snippet of a blog post instead of the default " [...] "

    Could anyone tell me how to do that... provide me with a code or something. Would be grateful.

    Thanks.

    P.S - I am using a child theme based on iconic-one

    Copy the content.php file from the parent to the child theme's directory. Edit this file and replace

    the_excerpt()

    with

    the_content('Read More')

    on line 55.

    Did not work mate. Changed the code from -

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    to

    <?php the_content('Read More'); ?>

    After changing the.. The excerpts were gone and the full posts were visible on the blog.

    I need a Read more "button" - refer http://www.idownloadblog.com not just the text.

    Thanks.

    After doing this edit you have to place the "more quick tag" in your post for the "Read More" link to appear.
