Support » Theme: Spacious » Change Read More button language Footer theme name

  • Hi there,
    1. I am running this theme on a website which is currently in French so I’d like to change the code of the “Read More” buttons to French text. Where can do this?
    2. Where can I remove “Theme by: ThemeGrill Powered by: WordPress” that appears in the footer?
    Thanks for your help

  • Create a child theme and copy over the appropriate files you want to edit then edit those files directly.

    Hi summerchilde,
    Thanks for your reply. I had gotten that far but am not sure in which file would I find the code to change and what would I change it to? (I’m starting out with WordPress) …

    thanks

    Hi
    First, if you haven’t already, read how to make a child theme here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    After you’ve created the child theme just copy over the footer.php and edit line 21 for the footer copyright. Then, to fix the read more, read this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More You’ll need to find which file in the theme uses ‘<?php the_excerpt(); ?>’ and edit that file most likely.

    Thanks for your reply,
    Found this in the codex page => Modify The Read More Link Text
    Adding this code to your functions file enables you to customize the read more link text.

    add_filter( 'the_content_more_link', 'modify_read_more_link' );
    function modify_read_more_link() {
    return '<a class="more-link" href="' . get_permalink() . '">Your Read More Link Text</a>';
    }

    I added it to the child theme functions.php file at the end but it doesn’t work. the code just appeared on the website. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?
    Thanks

    did you put that code inside a ‘<?php and ?>’ ?

    i copied the following at the end of the php file

    ?>
    add_filter( 'the_content_more_link', 'modify_read_more_link' );
    function modify_read_more_link() {
    return '<a class="more-link" href="' . get_permalink() . '">Plus</a>';
    }

    your functions.php of the child theme should only have:

    <?php
    
    add_filter( 'the_content_more_link', 'modify_read_more_link' );
    function modify_read_more_link() {
    return '<a href="' . get_permalink() . '">Plus</a>';
    
    ?>

    without those backticks (‘), of course.

    this does not work. i noticed there is another function php file called inc/functions.php
    could this be the issue?

    I doubt it. Have you tried editing the ‘<?php the_excerpt(); ?>’ instead?

    no. where and how do i do this?
    thanks

    Any ideas?
    Thanks
