Changing default phrases


I writing a tutorial that I hope to post this time. I will share the link after it has been posted. I am working on phrases.

In a blog page.

// Modify Continue reading text. I changed it to Read more.
add_filter( 'beans_post_more_link_text_output', 'modify_read_more' );
    function modify_read_more() {
return 'Read more';
// To remove the >> after Continue reading add
beans_remove_markup( 'beans_next_icon[_more_link]' );
// Below the Continue Reading >> are the words Filed under. I changed it to Located in.
add_filter( 'beans_post_meta_categories_prefix_output', 'modify_filed_under' );
 function modify_filed_under() {
 return 'Located in ';
// To remove the Filed under and categories list.
beans_remove_action( 'beans_post_meta_categories' );

Adjustments in a post.

// Modify Posted on text. 
add_filter( 'beans_post_meta_date_prefix_output', 'modify_posted_on' );
function modify_posted_on() {
return 'Posted ';
// Modify author text. Removes the author name and replaces with what you add below. I added The author.
add_filter( 'beans_post_meta_item_author_text_output', 'modify_author' );
function modify_author() {
return 'The author ';
// Beside author: Comments text. Not working correctly!
add_filter( 'beans_post_meta_item_comments_text_output', 'modify_comments_text' );
      function modify_comments_text() {
 return 'Comments text ';

NB! Changing the Leave a comment to other phrases removes the link! How do I get it back? How do I remove Posted on, author name and leave a reply?

Comments section

// Modify: No comment yet, add your voice below! 
add_filter( 'beans_no_comment_text_output', 'modify_no_comments_text' );
      function modify_no_comments_text() {
 return 'Changing no comments yet text ';
// Modify: "Add a Comment" text
add_filter( 'beans_comment_form_title_text_output', 'modify_add_comment' );
      function modify_add_comment() {
 return 'Add your comment below.';
// Not working...
beans_remove_action( 'beans_comment_form_title' );

Not working.

// Modify: "Comment *" text
add_filter( 'beans_comment_form_legend_text[_comment]_output', 'modify_comment' );
      function modify_comment() {
 return 'Your comment below.';
// Modify: "Post Comment" button text
add_filter( 'beans_comment_form_submit_text_output', 'modify_post_comment_btn' );
      function modify_post_comment_btn() {
 return 'Share your words';
// Modify "Moderator" text
add_filter( 'beans_moderator_text_output', 'modify_post_moderator_text' );
      function modify_post_moderator_text() {
 return '  Web dude';

Other information I have added to the tutorial.

Styling with CSS

Look at the data-markup-id name through your browsers Inspect. NB! Some Data Markup IDs might already have a class name associated with it. Then use the existing class and style it. Many will not have one and will need to have a class name added.

For instance: data-markup-id=”beans_post_more_link” and data-markup-id=”beans_post_meta_categories”.

beans_add_attribute( ‘beans_post_more_link’, ‘class’, ‘meta-read-more’ ); beans_add_attribute( ‘beans_post_meta_categories’, ‘class’, ‘meta-categories’ );

In your stylesheet be in CSS or your LESS stylesheet use the classes: .meta-read-more and .meta-categories to style these areas.

.meta-categories {
background: red;
border: 1px solid #333;

Styling with UIKit

Instead of adding a CSS class one can instead add a UiKit attribute. Here I am adding an uk alert to the comments title.

beans_replace_attribute( ‘beans_comments_title’, ‘class’, ‘uk-alert’ );

What I am looking for is some adjustments to the issues I mentioned. If there are other phrases or information that would be good to add please let me know by posting below so that I can include them in the tutorial I have written but not posted on my web site yet. I am hoping after having updated this tutorial that I will also post it. Thanks.
