Change the Divi blog module “Read More” text to say something different.

I have received feedback that some readers of my blogs are not computer savvy and do not understand the concept of “Excerpts”. They don’t realize the “read more” hyperlink at the bottom of a blog pot excerpt would bring them to the full post content. Maybe you have the same problem on your Divi blog or maybe you just want it to say something other than “read more”. Fortunately a quick trip to google showed me an easy fix. (there are more technical ways to do this too)

In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Divi>Theme Options>Integration and add code below to the “Body ” field. Note: Make sure the “Enable Body Code” switch is on.

<script type="text/javascript">
(function($) {
$(document).ready(function() {
var newVal = 'View Full Post';
$('.more-link').html( newVal );

In the above script change the text “View Full Post” to say whatever you want displayed at the bottom of you blog post excerpts.

I wish Elegant Themes would give Divi users the option to make this a visible button. Maybe one day.
