Advanced Excerpt
US quote punctuation not recognized as end of sentence (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    I think I found a bug with the option that has the excerpt end at the end of a sentence. If you have text with a bunch of sentences that end with a period followed by a double quote - the stupid U.S. way of writing quotes - Advanced Excerpt will not recognize those as the ends of those sentences. Thus, text can keep running as it just happened to a post of ours - it took up 3-4 extra sentences and double the allowed word count.

    Here's the text in question: http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/09/13/acer-reportedly-cancels-announcement-of-aliyun-powered-smartphone-following-google-warning-says-alibaba/

    I'm having the same issue. Did you find a fix?

    Didn't look at the source, so I just inserted a More tag and forced it to interrupt where I wanted for that post.
