Divi: Change the Read more text on your blog module


So if you have been blogging for a while, you might have noticed that not everyone understands the meaning of the text ‘Read more’ in your blog post snippets. Some people think it refers to other snippets or other pages even. This is why I decided to change the text.

For some reason the developers of Divi have not yet come up with the possibility to change the text in the blog post module, so you have to get some code into the theme options of Divi.

Thank goodness this has become easy as well and it should not be a problem for you at all if you know how the Divi theme works. So just follow the steps below and you will be fine.

Step 1

Go to Divi  – theme options in your WordPress dashboard

Step 2

Paste the code below in the black box next to this text: 

Add code to the < body > (good for tracking codes such as google analytics)

jQuery(document).on(‘ready ajaxComplete’, function () {
//Replace read more link text
$(“.et_pb_post a.more-link”).html(function () {
return $(this).html().replace(‘read more’, ‘View full post’);
//Replace blog pagination text
$(“.et_pb_ajax_pagination_container .pagination a, .archive .pagination a, .search .pagination a”).html(function () {
return $(this).html().replace(‘«’, ”).replace(‘»’, ”).replace(‘Older Entries’, ‘Older Posts’).replace(‘Next Entries’, ‘Newer Posts’);


Step 3

If you don’t like my suggestion to change the ‘Read more’ text into ‘ View full post’, than change it into something you do like. 

Just change the text between the quotes.

So changeable by your are:

‘View full post’

‘Older Posts’

‘Newer Posts’


Step 4

If you are satisfied, click on  the green button ‘Save changes’ (it is all the way down on the page) and check out your blog page to see the changes.

Have a great day!

    Ha Linda,

    Ik schrijf maar even in het Nederlands, want volgens mij is het voor ons beiden onze moedertaal.

    Ik kwam op deze pagina terecht omdat ik op zoek ben naar een oplossing om Read more tekst op een meertalige Divi website per taal aan te passen. Heb jij dit al eens moeten doen? If so, wat is de beste werkwijze?

    Dank alvast,

      Hi Margriet,

      Yes I am a Dutch native. I built this website for my European clients, so I’d like to answer your question in English. If I were to build a multilingual blog page, I’d choose to use polilang and build different pages per language and set them for each language. Also because your blog posts will be grouped per language. And with Divi this is very simple, because you can copy the page and just translate it. Was this helpful?

      Kind regards,
