    Hello,

    The plugin works almost perfect. However, I cannot adjust the length of the description. It is limited to 150 characters. I have tried to use Custom Description, but it is limited to the same length?

    Hi,

    You mean the Custom summary? Yep, I have set this at max 150 characters (file vsel.php). If you don’t use this it will use the excerpt length of your theme (default lenght is 55 words, but your theme might have set another length).

    Thank you! I have now increased the length of description.

    It would be great, if this can be adjusted without editing plugin files.
    My suggestion also to allow using links in Location and custom description (if it is possible of course).

    I was trying to connect location to google maps and failed.

    Otherwise, it’s perfect! thanks!

    Hi,

    I hardcoded the excerpt length otherwise users can insert large blocks of text there, and I don’t want this. I currently don’t know how to create a variable excerpt length.

    Links are allowed in the summary field but HTML isn’t. HTML is stripped from the excerpt in frontend, when using the default the_excerpt function, this is a WordPress thing.

    You cannot enter iframe or other code in location field because of the input validation.
