Filtering excerpts in WordPress

By default WordPress displays […] at the end of an excerpt, which doesn’t look good. Instead, I use this functions on blogs that I build, which changes it to something that looks better. Just add the following to your active theme’s functions.php:

function new_excerpt_more( $more ) {
return '... <a class="moretag" href="'. get_permalink($post-&gt;ID) . '"> Read More »</a>';
}
add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');
