    Hi,

    Short and to the point. Newsletter is pulling info from the_content and not the_excerpt. Is there a way to force the newsletter to pull the excerpt from wordpress posts?

    The site I am using the newsletter on is: http://www.aamagasin.com

    Regards

    Ravnak

    ravnak & bart: you're right! Knews get the excerpt through the content, and ignores the manual excerpt...

    Please, try this patch over the 1.2.8 version:

    http://www.knewsplugin.com/excerpt_patch.zip

    You must upload the file through FTP into the folder /wp-content/plugins/knews/direct

    Please, give me feedback.
    Carles.

    similar problem over here. I need the excerpt (with custom length according to where i've put the 'more'-tag)

    without the patch i get the excerpt with standard length without the 'continue reading'-link

    with the patch i get the excerpt with standard length with the 'continue reading'-link

    Please, can do you try this patch (over 1.3.0):

    http://www.knewsplugin.com/select_post_patch_1_3_0.zip

    This gets the excerpt through the same way as WordPress does

    Hi and thanks for the update.

    I have been extremely busy, so I had no chance to test things last week. I hope that I can set aside some Knews testing time somewhere this week.

    I also ran into some other small issues with Knews and I have some good ideas for simple but major improvements I like to share.

    Hope to catch up later this week.

    And thanks for the good work
