[resolved] Possible to pull in custom excerpts with premium version? (3 posts)

    I have since purchased the premium version of the plugin and I'm having some conflicts with multiple excerpt lengths. Is it possible to pull in custom excerpt lengths into the event list shortcode?

    Do you have access to the Premium Support portal? I assume you're talking about the %EXCERPT% variable included in the premium version, but I don't know what you mean by "multiple excerpt lengths".

    Thank you.

    I don't seem to have access to the Premium Support panel, no. I'm currently working on a temporary domain and locally, so it's not live on the domain I registered the plugin with, so I would imagine that probably has something to do with it.

    I was wondering if you could define custom excerpt lengths that aren't based on the default WordPress excerpt length. I'm using the Advanced Excerpt plugin elsewhere on the site and It would be nice if I could pull the excerpts it generates into the shortcode lists rather than just being constrained by the default WordPress excerpt length. Like maybe having that %EXCERPT% call execute a custom function to pull a custom excerpt length?

    I have since figured it out, though by just setting the default WordPress excerpt length as the length I needed for the event list and then executing a custom excerpt length function within the loop, so it turned out to be kind of a non-issue. I do have other questions, but I'll start a new thread or await your answer on the Premium Support panel.
