[resolved] Excerpts don't work Events Made Easy (2 posts)

    I'm unable to figure out how to include a short excerpt in the List Format on the Events Made Easy Plugin.

    I'm NOT new to WP excerpts or excerpt plugins, but the developers of this Plugin need to provide a better explanation of how to use this vague line:

    Use #_EXCERPT to show #_NOTES until you place a <!––more––> marker.

    When I add #_EXCERPT and even add #_NOTES, to the format for the Event List the Events page displays the entire event description instead of an excerpt. Where do I program the length of the excerpt? Is the length determined in characters or words?

    Do I have to use shortcode in the event page to do this? Do I need to modify a php file and if so which one?

    The excerpt (as shown by using #_EXCERPT) only shows the part of the whole event info (as shown by #_NOTES) until (up to where) the text "<!––more––>" is encountered in the event info.
