  • Resolved marv2


    I would like to change the Continue Reading Text based on the custom post type.

    I tried using your code here and adapting it to my needs, but it is not working.

    Here is what I tried in my child functions.php:

    function myprefix_post_readmore_link_text() {
        if ( $post->post_type == 'paint' ) {
            $text = 'View Paints';}
        return $text;}
    add_filter( 'ocean_post_readmore_link_text', 'myprefix_post_readmore_link_text' );

    Any help is appreciated!

  • Hello marv2,

    Add below php code into your current active child theme’s functions.php file or you can use Code Snippets plugin for use below php code.

    add_filter( 'ocean_post_readmore_link_text', 'change_read_more_text' );
    function change_read_more_text() {
      return __( 'Read More', 'oceanwp' );

    Hope this will helps you.

    Hello, do you need to change the text only for your paint post type or all your site?
    If it is for your entire site, the code from @saurabhdhariwal will work.

    Thanks for your replies. I would like to change it just for the “paint” post type.

    Can you please try the code below:

    function myprefix_post_readmore_link_text($text) {
        if ( 'paint' == get_post_type() ) {
            $text = 'View Paints';
        return $text;
    add_filter( 'ocean_post_readmore_link_text', 'myprefix_post_readmore_link_text' );
