Remove the read more with this code in your functions.php: function wpse_230169_excerpt_more($more) { return ''; } add_filter('excerpt_more', 'wpse_230169_excerpt_more'); Then in your template file just add the link wherever you want with: <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">Read More</a>


You can make a basic link to the current post within the loop with <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">Read More</a>


You can just remove the filter before calling the_excerpt and then add it back afterwards... remove_filter('excerpt_more','new_excerpt_more'); the_excerpt(); add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');
