[resolved] specify excerpt length? (4 posts)

    Does anyone know if you can specify the length of the excerpt displayed using this plugin? By number of lines or word count, for instance? I'm displaying one post title and one excerpt in a DIV with a fixed height, so I need the excerpt to end and the "read more" link to appear after a specific length. Any help is much appreciated.

    Yes, that plugin worked like a charm when paired with a separate plugin called 'the_excerpt Reloaded' (find it here). That combination allows you to specify the number of posts to show, the number of excerpts to show, what the 'read more' link should read, number of words to limit excerpt to, and more.

    Resloving this topic now. Thanks, @matius.
