    Hi,

    I know there's an option to change the excerpt length, but when I try to extend it to say 400 characters it doesn't work. What is the limit on the length and can I make the limit longer?

    Love the plugin otherwise though, thanks for the sharing your hardwork!

    Thanks,
    Ali

    I'm having the same problem – anyone have an answer to this?

    Regards, Simon

    You just have to replace "get_the_excerpt()" with "get_the_content()" in line 455 in includes/widget-recent-posts-extended.php

    I created a pull request on github, so hopefully it will be fixed with the next update: https://github.com/satrya/recent-posts-widget-extended/pull/15/files

    Thank you for the solution. I guess the core has a limit of 40 words when you pull excerpts.
