Fancy Excerpt

Description

This plugin has been retired. No further development will occur on it.

The fancy excerpt plugin for WordPress replaces the default automatic excerpt generator with a sentence aware excerpt generator.

When automatically generating an excerpt, WordPress will no longer cut your posts after an arbitrary number of characters. Instead, it will keep adding complete paragraphs until 30 words or more are returned. It then completes the excerpt with a More… link.
