Ok. I followed the directions in this blog post.
wonderful post btw. It workes, except the read more link does not. It shows the code. How do I change this?
code for the functions php in my child theme of twentytwelve:
// Remove the ... from excerpt and change the text
// Use .read-more to style the link
return ' < span class = "Click-To-Read-More." > < a href = "' . get_permalink($post->ID) . '" > Click to read more. » </ a > </ span > ';
link to site having issues
As you can see the excerpt works except the read more link is not working. I'm trying to customise that fraze to read something like "Continu reading" or "Click to continu reading" or something like that. thanks.
