In a site that uses Bones theme, I am trying to localize the search results page and would like to replace the "read more" text with something else. I tried editing the search.php but it is useless as the search.php seems to have a bug (It calls the_excerpt function with parameters while the function does not take any).
I also tried the filter hook as described in the function reference but could not make it work, perhaps because I could not call the new function as required.
I am quite new to wordpress and php, yes, but I feel there should be an easier way to replace that text. Are there any suggestions?
