[resolved] HTML being stripped from post excerpt (7 posts)

    I noticed that all of my html is stripped from the excerpt field when being displayed using the Recent Posts Extended widget. How can I keep the html tags in place when using this plugin to display a post excerpt? I believe this used to work and just recently stopped working?

    I'm sorry, the excerpt function is WordPress core function so I couldnt help with this problem :)

    I believe something has changed, as I've rolled back to version 0.8 of your plugin, and the html is preserved. As soon as I update to version 0.9, all html is lost.

    Hmm.. yes actually version 0.9 has new function for the excerpt. Can you post your link?

    Sure - thanks for your quick response. Here's the website:

    We are using RPWE for the very first blog post excerpt on the home page, just below the menu. You'll see the image displayed, then the excerpt and a Read More button.

    This is running RPWE 0.9. If you want me to roll back to 0.8, just let me know.

    Weird, 0.8 and 0.9 the difference is just in version 0.9 I changed for better coding standard. I will check it again soon, if you need the html tags please just use version 0.8 :)

    Sounds good. We'll run on 0.8 until you have an update. Thanks!
