[Read More…] or [Continue Reading…] links are added at the end of post excerpts (with content limit) on homepage and archive pages of Genesis child themes. While few users find this useful, others may want to remove them. Ideally, a user can click through post title to view all contents making [Read More…] look like extra drag.

Remove [Read More…] from Genesis homepage, archives

Just add following code to functions.php file and its all done. This will remove [Read More..] links for every post listing on homepage and archive pages.

// Remove read more – basicWP.com
add_filter( ‘get_the_content_more_link’, ‘child_read_more_link’ );
function child_read_more_link() {
return ”;

    Short, sharp, to the point and really useful tip.

    Copy code… paste code in to functions.php and job done.

    Thanks for the info.

    As Kerth Davis said, very useful and just to-the point answer. Thank you.
