multiple excerpt lengths without stripping p tags? (4 posts)

    I've been using the following code to manually control the excerpt length. However when calling the excerpt using <?php echo excerpt(75); ?> any line breaks in the original excerpt get stripped out. Is there a way I can fix it so they are retained?

  2. Calling the excerpt strips out all formatting totally, not just the paragraph tag.

    If you use the custom excerpt box, it'll keep all your HTML intact.

    I don't want to use the custom excerpt box though. I would like it to grab the content. Can I change something in here to bring the tags back in?

    $excerpt = preg_replace('\[[^\]]*\]','',$excerpt);
