Hi, great theme! my fav blank theme so far.
I'm unable to change the_excerpt()'s read more link by using a child theme. This theme has it set to read Continue reading with a special character. I don't want to edit the boilerplate parent them files.
I've copied and changed the function names of the code in functions.php from the boilerplate theme into my own child themes functions.php
I've also added
remove_filter( 'get_the_excerpt', 'boilerplate_custom_excerpt_more' );
remove_filter( 'excerpt_more', 'boilerplate_auto_excerpt_more' );
But I'm still seeing the boilerplate themes continue reading links.
I'm new to child themes and have done some reading but may have missed something. I'd greatly appreciate any thoughts on this.
