Support » Fixing WordPress » multiple excerpt lengths without stripping p tags?
5 years, 5 months ago
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?
<?php echo excerpt(75); ?>

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.

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