Character Count Excerpt

Generate automated excerpts using character count instead of word count. New Reading setting to specify length.

By default, WordPress trims excerpts by word count (55 words by default). This plug-in allows you to trim by a maximum character count instead. All of the usual filters apply; developers can also modify the character count using a new

character_count_excerpt_length

filter. Non-developers can now easily change the excerpt length using a new option on the Reading settings pages.

The default character length is 300.
