Modify the read more text

The code snippets below should be pasted into your child theme's functions.php file.

The posts read more link is set to “Continue reading” by default. Here is how to update the text to “Read more”.

// Modify the read more text.
add_filter( 'beans_post_more_link_text_output', 'example_modify_read_more' );

function example_modify_read_more() {

   return 'Read more';

You can use the WordPress translate() function, if you need the string to be translatable.
