Hi there,

Simple question - I need to edit the "click to read more" link which appears directly after the product description cutoff on the products home page. Cant find this in any of the ecommerce / payment template files. It's the link to the full product description. I need to edit the text on the link.

Hi Ramshackle,
You should find it in ecommerce/templates/Includes/
on the latest version its on line 10 you'll see something like <% _t("READMORECONTENT","read more") %>
this is just for multilingual sites, you can just replace that code with what ever you desire!

Hi Bambii7,

That's where I thought initially but changing the text doesn't change the rendered page text - flushed cache etc.. weird, can't find reference to that text anywhere at all in any of the templates, frustrating but not a massive deal. Searched every template file for the word 'click' but no results & it still appears on the products page.. anywhere else it might be?

Just to double check, did you also check the includes?

Yep, checked those also. Its driving me mad. Should be easy but I can't find it!

Hi guys, note that you'll need to replace the entire tag: <% _t("READMORECONTENT","read more") %>. The "read more" text inside the tag is only used when a translation isn't available, otherwise it uses the text from the active language (probably US). You'll find that text in ecommerce/lang/en_US.php
