Quick Wordpress Question - More Tag

4 replies
Hi all,

How can I change the text for the "More Tag"

In other words, how can I change it from "Read more »" to something else? Any idea?

In addition to this question, how can I Category text? I don't want it to say Category, I would like it to say something else. Thoughts? I'm sure it's easy, I just don't know how to do it.

    Hi Chris,
    If you login to your admin then click on design then theme editor.
    Select page template and you're looking for something like this:
    <div class="cover">
    <div class="entry">
    <?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>

    The categories should be found in the sidebar file.

    In the theme editor, go to the main template and look for this line:
    <?php the_content(__('(more...)')); ?>

    Change the more... to whatever you like and click save..

    Thanks to you both. That worked perfect for the more tag.

    Now, I see the category code in the sidebar.php file, but when I changed it nothing happened.

    Here is the code:
    if (is_category()) {
    $what_youre_doing = sprintf(
    __('You are currently browsing the archives for the \'%s\' Categories', 'mandigo'),

    I change "Categories" and it didn't change it on the blog. Thoughts?

    You should see them in between the h2 tags.

    There should be a few eg:

    Anything in between h2 tags is visible text.
