Support » Plugin: TPG Get Posts » [Plugin: TPG Get Posts] having trouble with 'shorten_content' item

  • Resolved Sam


    Upgraded to WP 3.3.2 and TGP 1.3.3 (from 3.3.1 & 1.3.0 respectively).

    Now no matter what I use in the shorten_content option, the post on the news page is always the same length. Doesn’t matter if I use the c or the w to limit the length.

    My tag looks like this: [tpg_get_posts fields=”post_title, post_content” show_entire=”false” shorten_content=”w300″ text_ellipsis=” …” ]

    Any suggestions?

    Also worth noting: on the plugin’s overview page, it shows a tag as post_entire=”false” while on the options page, it has show_entire instead.

    Let me look at this. I am involved in a project at the moment, but will have time lat this evening or tomorrow.

    Thanks for the heads up on the doc, I will correct that also.



    Thank you!

    Not sure if this helps, but I did a little testing.

    I rolled back the plugin and tested all the versions from 1.3.0 to 1.3.4 and they all have the same result on WP 3.3.2.

    I wasn’t quite willing to roll back WordPress to an earlier version (as the issue is on a client’s site).

    But I think I can say that it’s due to a change in the WordPress updates (if not 3.3.2, then a recent 3.3.x version) rather than something that you changed in the plugin code.

    Thanks for the face saving gesture of pointing to the wordpress release, but alas, it was the change to the class from version 1.2 to 1.3. I did not get some variables in the correct scope….last minute change.

    I pushed the changes up as 1.3.4. Please let me know if you have any other problems. I have made several changes and did not go back and test all of the features.

    I can email you the plugin directly if you don’t want to wait for the update on WP, but it should be available soon.

    PS-Let me know if there you find other problems.
