Advanced Excerpt

Several improvements over WP's default excerpt. The size can be limited using character or word count, and HTML markup is not removed.

Good plugin, could do with a fixin...

Does its job, and pretty well. Only downside is you can't customize the link to view the full content, with shortcodes or html - it makes the link point to "/#".

Works for my needs
By , for WP 3.6.1

I needed a way to keep the links active on short posts' excerpts. Some posts for a client site are simply "View the announcement here" type with "here" as the linking text. Now the excerpt on the homepage and the archive pages actually works when clicked...

Easy to use, customizable
By , for WP 3.6.1

I installed it and it worked right away. Just what I like in a plugin! There are a lot of customization options which are great if you like to have a lot of control over the way your blog is displayed.

PLugin survives new WordPress updates
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is a real discovery, because it allows me to keep HTML formatting in my excerpt.

I am so delighted with the results.

Great plugin

Does anyone know if it is possible to add shortcodes to the acceptable tags? I just put my text in two columns and now nothing shows.

Many thanks
