Support » Plugin: Flex Posts - Widget and Gutenberg Block » Odd text added to short excerpts in FP

  • Resolved Keirwatson


    I have just noticed that some of the FP excerpts on my blog have started including some unwanted text appended to the end, typically: “Share this:TwitterFacebookPrintTelegramPinterestCustomize…”

    This did not use to happen, although I can’t say when it started (sometime in the last year would be my guess)

    It seems to be happen to posts that have a short excerpts (shorter than the length set in FP) It appears FP is looking for additional text to fulfil its quota and for some reason, is reaching for the Jetpack share meta at the bottom of the post! Strangely it does not do this on all posts with short excerpts.

    I have tried deactivating my cache and minification plugin (SG Optimizer) but this did not cure it.

    Any ideas?

    Jetpack added share links after the post content and excerpt. If you want to disable it in excerpt, you can use this code:

    add_action( 'wp', function() {
    	remove_filter( 'the_excerpt', 'sharing_display', 19 );
    } );

    It worked! Thank you so much Tajam. I Love this plugin!

    BTW Do you think you will add this exclusion in a future update? Seems like it should be default behaviour.
