[resolved] [Plugin: Testimonials Widget] Character limit not working? (7 posts)

    I have some long testimonials and would only like to show only part of them in a block on my page with a "..." or "read more" link. I thought that setting the character limit would 'chop' the text off - but it only seems to exclude any testimonials over that limit from being displayed at all (is this the cause of people getting only the title & no testimonials as in some other posts?).
    Also 0 the 'limit' in the shortcode seems to refer to the number of testimonials displayed - not to the character limit? Is there a parameter to the shortcode to limit the number of lines/character displayed?
    Sorry a bit new to this - am I missing something obvious??

    There's not a character limit with a chop for … in place at this time. I'll put this up as a feature request.

    Please check out Release 0.2.10. I've made character truncating possible plus a couple of bug fixes.

    Ciao!

    Thanks - that's great! Is there a shortcode parameter that will achieve the same thing (character limit i.e. truncation of testimonial)?
