    Two options.

    1st, provide a WordPress Excerpt – WPBook should use that if you provide one.

    2nd, edit code. Specifically wpbook/includes/publish_to_facebook.php

    Lines 152-157 in current version:

    if(strlen($wpbook_description) >= 995) {
         $space_index = strrpos(substr($wpbook_description, 0, 995), ' ');
         $short_desc = substr($wpbook_description, 0, $space_index);
         $short_desc .= '...';
         $wpbook_description = $short_desc;
    }

    If you change the two 995 numbers to something quite a bit shorter it will get truncated when you post.

    Thanks johneckman, the 2nd option works but want to try the 1st one and dont know how to provide the WordPress Excerpt?

    @armen_1982 when you are authoring a post in WordPress, underneath the main ‘body’ section for posts, there is an ‘excerpt’ section.

    See http://codex.wordpress.org/Excerpt

    If you provide an excerpt, WPBook should use that instead.

    (Note since WP 3.1, the excerpt field may be hidden by default – you may need to show it in screen options)

    Thanks!!!
