I'd like to show the snippet of the most recent post in the sidebar of all pages.
The sidebar template contains
<?php the_content_limit(200, ""); ?> which works fine on the homepage, but shows not just the excerpt when viewed on all other pages (alongside a post).
This is presumably because
<!--more--> doesn't signify the end of the displayed content when it's on a post page.
How would I get around this?
