    Hello. First of all Thank you for your plugin I have been searching for something like this in like a month. This plugin actualy works perfectly but at the end of the excerpt there appears the […] which should be a link. I tried to add the php code you provided to my functions.php but then I got server error (the site wont load at all with that code inserted). I would realy appreciate the help. Thank you.

    I found a solution of my problem. For everyone having this problem, here is what I did:
    I added the following code inside the display-posts-shortcode.php

    function be_excerpt_link( $more ) {
    	return '<a href="' . get_permalink() . '">' . $more . '</a>';
    }
    add_filter( 'excerpt_more', 'be_excerpt_link', 20 );

    Here it is where I added this code:

    // Create the shortcode
    add_shortcode( 'display-posts', 'be_display_posts_shortcode' );
    function be_display_posts_shortcode( $atts ) {
    
    function be_excerpt_link( $more ) {
    	return '<a href="' . get_permalink() . '">' . $more . '</a>';
    }
    add_filter( 'excerpt_more', 'be_excerpt_link', 20 );

    You can place that code in your theme’s functions.php file. Do not place it in the plugin files as it will be overwritten when you update the plugin

    Hello, I tried to do that but that messes up the website (the website wont load at all when I add the code to theme-functions.php) Maybe adding the code manualy after the plugin update would do it.
