"Read more" link at the end of excerpt in Origin Theme

    How do I add this capability to our blog? I have tried pasting this:

    function excerpt_read_more_link($output) {
    global $post;
    return $output . 'ID) . '"> Read More...';
    }
    add_filter('the_excerpt', 'excerpt_read_more_link');

    ...into the Customization CSS section. It does nothing for me. Can someone explain to me in the most basic terms how to get this function?

    The blog I need help with is thisadventurouslifeblog.wordpress.com.

  2. Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. Read the full section here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions

  3. If your end goal is to add a "read more" link at the end of posts, you might be able to get the result you're after by using the more tag:

    If you want the ability to edit PHP such as the example you posted above, then you would indeed need to switch to a WordPress.org setup.
