Customizing the Blog Text

The Blog Text Replacement configuration offers a list of placeholders for which you can customize the display text.

For example, comment, read time, related posts, and pagination related display text can be configured using these settings.

Navigate to your website admin, browse to Appearance > Customize > Blog > Blog Text Replacement.

Comment – Single

Use this setting to change the display text for how a single comment is displayed. By default, it displays “One Comment”. You may prefer a numeric count and you can easily make this change without any problem.

Just enter the single comment replacement text in the input box under the “Comment – Single” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Comment – Plural

If there is more than 1 comment, you can set display text for the plural comments. It defaults to “Comments” and can be changed to suit preferences.

Simply enter the plural comment replacement text in the input box under the “Comment – Plural” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Read Time – Single

Every blog post takes a specific read time; programmatically counted by the number of words. If the read time falls under one minute, the display text defaults to “One Minute” but can be changed as per the preferences.

Enter the read time replacement text in the input box under the “Read Time – Single” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Read Time – Plural

If the read time is more than one minute, the display text should become plural as well. By default, it becomes “Minutes”.

Just enter the plural read time replacement text in the input box under the “Read Time – Plural” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Comment Field Placeholder

Every comment form has a comment placeholder, the text you see before you click over the textarea input to type the comment. The default placeholder is “Your Comment Here…” but you may want to add a creative placeholder to better resonate with your target audience.

Just enter the replacement text for the comment field placeholder in the input box under the “Comment Field Placeholder” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Comment Submit Label

The comments submit label by default displays “Post Comment” but can be changed to a more meaningful text.

Enter the submit comment replacement text in the input box under the “Comment Submit Label” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Comment Submit Label

Just in case if the comments are closed for any reason, the display text defaults to “Comments are closed”. You may want to edit the message to either personalize or type in the reason for why the comments are closed.

You can enter the replacement text for closed comments in the input box under the “Comment Submit Label” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Related Posts Label

The related posts label often times read as is, but that’s a preference. The Avoori default display text for related posts is “You Might Also Like”. You might consider a shorter a long text version of the same, to better fit into your design. Some may want to emphasize most on related posts. Whereas some people might just want to have related posts there for reference only.

The related post’s replacement text can be entered in the input box under the “Related Posts Label” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Continue Reading Text

The blog usually displays multiple blog entries/posts. Each displays an excerpt; consider it a summary for explaining the key concepts for the full posts. For reading more of the blog post, there is a button that lets you read more or continue to read the post.

The default text for that button remains “Continue Reading” until changed.

Just enter the replacement text in the input box under the “Continue Reading Text” label in the Blog Replacement Text panel to change.

Previous Post Label

The pagination’s previous post label defaults to “Previous Post” and can be easily changed as well.

You can enter the previous post replacement text using the input box, provided underneath the “Previous Post Label” label in the Blog Text Replacement panel.

Next Post Label

The pagination’s next post label displays “Next Post” by default until changed.

Use the input box provided under the “Next Post Label” label in the Blog Text Replacement panel to enter the replacement text for the next post label.
