    I have been trying to replace "Continue reading" in excerpts with some custom text using some function in my child theme - however, I'm not getting anywhere - I'd appreciate if somebody would have some piece of code that would work in my child's theme functions.php file.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I didn't review the codex - unfortunately it didn't help at all as all the examples I tried didn't work when put into the child's them functions.php

    found meanwhile the following piece of code that works as well:

    function change_excerpt_more(){
    	   function new_excerpt_more( $more ) {
    	        return '<span class="read-more"> <a href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) . '">Read more</a> </span>';
    	   add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');
    	add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'change_excerpt_more' );

    Thanks for your help guys
