    1. Change [...] string

    By default, excerpt more string at the end is set to '[...]'. To change excerpt more string using excerpt_more filter, add the following code to functions.php file in your theme:

    Code:
    function new_excerpt_more( $more ) {
        return '[Read More]';
    }
    add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');
    
    2. Change Excerpt Length

    By default, excerpt length is set to 55 words. To change excerpt length to 200 words using excerpt_length filter, add the following code to functions.php file in your theme:

    Code:
    function custom_excerpt_length( $length ) {
        return 200;
    }
    add_filter( 'excerpt_length', 'custom_excerpt_length', 999 );
