[resolved] Excerpts end with 'by' (3 posts)

    Hello, thanks for the excellent widget - it works very well and is just what I was after.
    I have found that it works perfectly for posts that I enter, but if another user enters a post then the excerpt ends in '... by ', which looks a bit odd.
    Have I configured something incorrectly in the widget or elsewhere in WordPress? I am a new user so am still learning how to get a site up and running!

    Problem solved! I have set my excerpt length to 15, and the problem only occurs on posts with thirteen or fewer words. Some of my test posts only had a few words as I was being lazy, but real posts will generally have more than 13 words so this is not a problem.
