  • Resolved Digital-Ninja


    This plugin is great! Thanks for the hardwork and support. I’m using it on several projects and should it continue to please, I’ll be sure to make a donation.

    One tiny issue however. The excerpt_size does not seem to limit to the preferred characters. The short code I’m using is:

    [catlist id=238 orderby=date order=asc class=recipelistleft excerpt_size=60 excerpt=yes numberposts=9]

    Here’s the page it is showing on…

    Look for list under header, “Sohgave! Product Guide” at the bottom of the page. Thanks again!

  • Hello Digital-Ninja,

    I meet the same trouble as yours. It sounds like you have fixed it. Could you please help and tell me how you fixed it ?

    In my list case, it appears that the plug-in won’t work after the third item.

    The link if you want to check it out :

    By the way, I visited your website. It’s very fun 🙂

    Thanks for your enlightement and best regards,


    Excerpt length / size isn’t working for me either, it would be great if you could fill us in on how you fixed it

    Any news here? Have the same trouble…

    Please test release 0.25.1 and let me know if it fixes your excerpt issues. The excerpt now works like this:


    • excerpt – Display the post’s excerpt. Default is ‘no’, use excerpt=yes to activate it. If you don’t have an excerpt in your post, the plugin will fetch this text from the content, striping its html tags and shortcodes. The limit is set by the excerpt_size parameter (55 words by default).
    • excerpt_size – Set the number of words to display from the excerpt. Default is 55. Eg: excerpt_size = 30

    Thanks, how do we get the 0.25.1? Could you post a link?

    It’s already on the site, so it’s just a matter of time before your WordPress installation tells you to update the plugin.

    great! everything works fine again! thanks!
