    I have advanced excerpt installed and need a custom excerpt.

    yet...I can't find the steps for where to put the custom excerpt. Is it a custom variable? What should the variable be called?

    I'd like to write my own short paragraph and have that serve as the excerpt.

    I'm really close, except that Advanced Excerpt does not seem to be stripping all of the p's and br's
