Add Continue Reading Link WordPress twenty fourteen theme is not difficult if you follow my step by step tutorial below.

In my past tutorial I have shown that how to show excerpt into home page/blog page instead of full article. The excerpt will show […] at the end of the excerpt by default.

To add Continue Reading/Read More link open the function.php and add the blow code at the end of the file.

//This code for Removing […] from excerpt and add Continue button

function change_excerpt_more()


function new_excerpt_more($more)


// You can style the link by using class .read-more into style.css

return ‘<span> <a href=”‘ . get_permalink() . ‘”>Continue Reading </a></span>’;


add_filter(‘excerpt_more’, ‘new_excerpt_more’);


add_action(‘after_setup_theme’, ‘change_excerpt_more’);

Note: You can use any word instead of ‘Continue Reading” in the above code.

Now save and close the function.php file and refresh your browser. This will remove […] and add the Continue Reading with the post link at the end of the excerpt of twenty fourteen theme. Add link style by using the class and enjoy.
