This is the code of continue reading in function.php

<?php the_content( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'twentyten' ) ); ?>

It has a class which named meta-nav I tried to find the class and change it but I couldn't find that. Where is that?

Thanks in advance

the css class .meta-nav might or might not be referenced in style.css or any other stylesheet of the theme.

if your theme is Twenty Ten then the css class is not used in style.css - add it as a new style if you need.

where should I add it? if in style I already added but nothing changed. Where css class uses in this theme? – aliboy38 Sep 23 '12 at 19:52
you could add it anywhere in style.css; just make sure to clear the browser cache. – Michael Sep 23 '12 at 19:55
nothing changed – aliboy38 Sep 23 '12 at 20:37
this is turning into a question about formatting/css which is outside the scope of this forum; possibly ask at wordpress.org/support and provide a link to your site with a description of what you want to change. – Michael Sep 23 '12 at 22:19

You could consider adding your own second class to the span such as: <?php the_content( __( 'Continue reading <span class="meta-nav MYCLASSNAME">&rarr;</span>', 'twentyten' ) ); ?>all lowercase of course, then in your CSS just style it something like, .myclassname { display:inline; color:#333; font-weight:bold; } Just as an example. That way you don't have to touch the original class and you can just add your own to it. I hope that helps!
