Hey all, this may have a REALLY simple answer, but I can't find it for all the searching of here and google.
I'm pulling out an excerpt of posts for my front page, (using the_excerpt or get_the_excerpt, there seems to be no difference in those two functions).
Now the faked excerpt is 121 characters long, how can I make it less (say.. around 50-60)? I used the old "wp-admin/options.php?option_group_id=X" thing to get at the "hidden" options.. but the rss_excerpt_length field there doesn't effect the normal faked excerpt.
Any suggestions on how I can do this?
