I´d like to include an extra two words into an echoed hyperlink. I have no PHP knowledge so far. Could anyone put me in the right direction?

<p class="excerpt"><strong> Bekijk meer van <?php echo get_the_term_list ( $post->ID, 'store' , '' )   ?>

It gives Bekijk meer van storename. I want it to show something like Bekijk meer van extra1 storename extra 2.

Never just print the result of get_the_term_list() without additional checks. It might return an instance of WP_Error which is an object, not a string.

Save the result of get_the_term_list() in a variable and print the terms only if there are terms and not an error:

$stores = get_the_term_list( $post->ID, 'store', '', ', ' );

// We got something back, and it is not an error.
if ( ! empty( $stores ) and ! is_wp_error( $stores ) )
    echo "<p class='excerpt'>
        <strong>Bekijk meer van extra1 $stores extra2</strong>

'Save the result of get_the_term_list() in a variable and print the terms only if there are terms ...' is not related to question and the rest is exactly what I commented above. – revo Mar 22 '13 at 10:48
@revo Whenever possible we use a question to show how to do it better than the asker had it planned. And in its current form there is nothing WordPress specific in the question; I tried to show how it could be a WordPress issue (is_wp_error()). And a comment is not an answer. – toscho Mar 22 '13 at 10:51
poor question doesn't need an answer except for receiving votes. That's the exact manner u did on my better than the asker had it planned answer on the other question. – revo Mar 22 '13 at 11:14
@revo Agreed, it is not a good question. But the opportunity to point at the error that should not be printed is useful. No idea what other answer you are talking about. If you think a moderator did something wrong raise the issue on WordPress Development Meta or flag it. – toscho Mar 22 '13 at 11:19
thanks for helping me. I cannot seem to figure out on how to implement it, as I have no PHP knowledge whatsoever. Could you please tell me what to replace for what? – Ramon v Mar 22 '13 at 15:52
