[Plugin: Mini Loops] Disable "continue reading" with custom excerpt? (3 posts)

    First, thanks for the plugin! It's great.

    I'm having trouble, though turning off the "Continue reading" link at the end of the excerpt when I use a custom excerpt. When I use the format

    [excerpt custom=0 after_link=0 after="" ]

    I get the first few words of the post and nothing else.

    When I use the format
    [excerpt custom=1 after_link=0 after="" ]

    I get the post's custom excerpt followed by the words "Continue reading" which links to the post. (If I have something other than an empty string as the after parameter, it is appended to the Continue reading.)

    Any chance of a fix? Thanks!

    Nevermind ... It appears that text is coming from WordPress and/or the theme when the custom excerpt is rendered. There's not an obvious CSS selector to hide it. I guess I'll look for some other hook to turn it off.

    Thanks again for the plugin!

    And why do I want to do this? I'm working with fairly short excerpts and the list is clearly a set of links for additional information.

    The list has the title as a link to the post and the extra link at the end of the excerpt just seems redundant.
