I am currently developing a custom theme for a client and have run into a tiny problem. Client requires that their category pages utilize the the_excerpt(). Therefore I have created a rather nice looking categories archive using the template hierarchy. The only small problem is that I have noticed then when using the the_excerpt() function each excerpt ends with a […]. While I understand that this is proper English. Its not what my client wants. Instead I need to replace the […] with a permalink to the article that says “read more here” creating the permalink was no problem at all. However the […] is still there. any help would be greatly appreciated.
