I have a client who is using a widget to display excerpts of posts (catchy intros) on her sidebar.
To do that, she must use excerpts.
So we can't use excerpts for the "display custom post" code/list of posts on the page. We don't want the catchy phrases displayed there.
I have used [display-posts include_content="true"] but of course the full content displays (including post images unfortunately) and some of the posts are quite long.
Is there a way to limit the number of characters displayed? I have tried to use the "more tag" (<!--more-->) but it does not work.
Any suggestions/hints are appreciated, I will gladly test them.
Thanks in advance :)
