Firstly many thanks for your theme, it looks great and so far very easy to use.
I just have a small question regarding the text that goes in boxes over the Homepage Slider. I have created a post with the correct Featured category setting and used the featured image too and all works fine. It's just that the text I have put in the main text area (which appears in the black faded box over the image) seems to be cut off after just 12 or 13 words. Is there a way to increase to the word count that displays here like in your demo of the theme?

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give here.
