I am wanting to insert this bit of code
_e( 'Read more', 'Translation' );
into this section of my code
$return_html.= '<a class="red" href="'.get_permalink($post->ID).'">_e( 'Read more', 'Translation' );</a></li>';
but I keep getting T_STRING errors when doing so. I'm really not to up to speed with PHP and I'm sure it's something fairly simple.
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
