    Just installed the update, which completely shat all over my excerpts.

    What's happening is instead of showing excerpts it's adding all the metadata that's added after a post, including related posts info, my AddThis code and other junk text that has nothing to do with the excerpt. I noticed this only happens on single post pages, while on archive blog index pages it seems to look ok. Here's an example of what it's supposed to show:

    Finding Two Lost Hearts in Texas <-- title

    One of the peculiar things regarding my trip to Texas was how my two tracking bugs (TBs) wound up there at JUST the right time, one being in…
    <--- excerpt

    This is what shows now:

    Finding Two Lost Hearts in Texas Subscribe to my posts or the kitten gets it: Related Posts A Tale of Two Tracking Bugs Texas is… well not what I expected… I think I’m relying too much on GPS Despite hating Valentine’s Day and hoping all who celebrate it die a horrific, violent death, I’m still a sap Arriving in Dallas var addthis_config = {"data_track_clickback":true}; <--- title

    See what's happening? It's adding all kinds of junk to the excerpt AND title that's coming from my postmeta content (text I've added after each post that people can click on to to find related posts, subscribe to my feed, share on facebook, etc)

    Since downgraded back to 1.4. Hope this can be fixed!

    Upon further investigation, this seems to be a problem as a result of adding content generated from the YARP (yet another related posts) plugin, which is tacked on after the post. When I deactivated that plugin the junk text disappeared.

    I've also noticed this issue started in 1.4, NOT 1.5, so I've downgraded one more time to 1.3. 1.3 has no problems with the YARPP plugin.

    Hope this can be fixed!
