    Hi! How can I do to change the “read more” text than appears in the Featured Areas and in each single post?
    Thank you

  • Hey there Nicola,

    Hope you’re well today!

    The easiest way to do that since the words are translatable to change them using translation files. You can find more information on how to do that here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress

    An alternative would be to edit 02.homepage.php which is located in /wp-content/themes/renden/admin/main/options/02.homepage.php. I strongly suggest not editing theme core files, best way to do that would be to copy it in your child theme and make the changes there. Read more words are located on lines 202, 218, 234 and 250. Simply replace read more with the word of your choice.

    Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best regards,

    Thank you very much!
    It worked perfectly!

    Hello,

    And thanks for a great theme!

    I tried to do all of the above to change the text “Read more” but didn’t succeed. I made a child theme and maybe there is something wrong with that? The changes I do in my child theme don’t show on the site.

    I would also like to change the “Read more” that pops up on the slider, how do I do that? (Guess it’s the same way as changing in the featured area…?)

    Best,
    Cilla

    Hey there Cilla,

    How are you today?

    Is your child theme working properly in the first place when you activate it in Appearance >> Themes? Did you copy 02.homepage.php to your child theme and made the changes there?

    I’m not sure about the read more button on the slider, no matter how much content I add into the slider description field I’m not getting the read more button. Is this the free version of the theme?

    Please let me know.

    Best regards,
    Bojan

    Doesn’t work, “Read More” doesn’t translate because the po-file translates “Read more…”, it doesn’t recognize “Read More”.
    The only way to do it is to change the core-php-file which is bad.

    Maybe the read-more-text can be replaced by a variable which we can alter in the child-theme’s functions.php (or whatever?)

    Hey there emaas, hope you’re well today!

    You could use jQuery to replace the words to the ones of your choice. Please try using the following:

    var replaced = jQuery("body").html().replace('read more','your text'); jQuery("body").html(replaced);

    This should change the read more text to what ever you want just replace your text part with the text of your choice.

    Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheers,
    Bojan

    Hey Bojan, thnx and sorry for replying this late, where do I put this code? When I put in the functions.php in the child theme I get a blank screen…

    Hey again emaas,

    If you’re looking to add this to your child theme functions.php you’d want to add something like this:

    add_action('wp_footer','my_js_function');
    function my_js_function(){
    ?>
    <script>
    jQuery(function(){
    var replaced = jQuery("body").html().replace('read more','your text'); jQuery("body").html(replaced);
    })
    </script>
    <?php
    }

    Please let me know if this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best regards,
    Bojan

    Hi Bojan, I added:

    add_action('wp_footer','my_js_function');
    function my_js_function(){
    ?>
    <script>
    jQuery(function(){
    var replaced = jQuery("body").html().replace('Read More', 'Lees meer'); jQuery("body").html(replaced);
    }
    </script>
    <?php
    }

    But no succes ( http:// http://www.suyderland.com ) still shows “Read More”.

    Hey again emaas,

    I can see the script added when checking the source of the page but I’m not exactly sure why it is not working.

    Since I’m not really familiar with the theme could you please let me know how are you adding read more button to the slider so I can test this out and provide a solution.

    Best regards,
    Bojan

    Hey Bojan

    I add the Read More Button by the theme options: when you fill in an URl at the slider the Read More Button will appear automatically.

    I am considering changing the core-php-files of the theme, but I don’t know how often it will be updated and how often I have to change it again… I have 6 WP-installations and 5 of them running the Renden theme.

    My first solution: putting Read More into a variable still stands firm as the only stable solution up till now lol.
    By putting it into a variable I can use str_replace in the childs funtions.php to display the Dutch version of the words รณr the theme-developers change it to the default WordPress statement “Read more…” รณr the WP-Translation files have to be updated with the Renden “Read More” statement (for Dutch too ofcourse).

    I will wait some more days, maybe a solution pops up, it’s not all too strange: I have another plugin (smilie) that contains the text “More >>”, this doen’t translate too.

    Weel there is more to it than I thought, the submit-button for comments doen’t translate too, it doesn’t work on any of the 5 installations I have. I guess something is not going right with the translation of the whole theme, I mean all the theme-strings that are not original WordPress-strings, they don’t translate.

    Is there a short way to add the unstranslated strings to the language-files? I can get poedit to do that.

    Hey there emaas,

    There is no easy way of adding untranslated strings that will be not be affected by the theme update. Considering that the jQuery is not working properly either I’ve been searching for an alternative solution for this.

    I’ve found this plugin and I’ve tested it using Renden theme and it’s working fine. What it does is simply search and change the string to something else so I guess you might want to try it out ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you mate for this link, I was looking for something like this allready too but didn’t find the right plugin, this one works fine and doesn’t slow down the page.

    I allways look with debug = true and no errors or messages either, seems the plugin is well written.

    I will contact them about one thing: it doesn’t change the “SUBMIT NOW” button on comments.php, I guess that won’t be hard to code in a later plugin-upgrade.

    For now: thnx!!! You have been a great help

    Hi again, I have been looking further and now the “SUBMIT NOW” button is translated too, I think it’s a strtoupper we are looking at on our browsers because it’s lowercase in the source-code.
    There are quite a few words in comments.php that don’t translate too, this is the list to make Renden 100% in your own language (the plugin is Case sensitive):

    • Read More
    • READ MORE
    • Submit Now
    • Your Message
    • Leave a comment
    • Your Name
    • (Required)
    • Your Email
    • Your Website

    Unfortunately the plugin doesn’t have an “export-options”-option so with every WP-installation you’ll have to tell him manually what to do, but after that it’s showtime!
    Thnx again
