Support » Plugin: Search in Place » Setting: Enter the number of characters for posts’ summaries

    (@briansteeleca)


    Hi there, I’m trying to set the suggested search summary (in the source dropdown) to more than about 20 characters, but when I set “Enter the number of characters for posts’ summaries” to a higher number (e.g. 100), nothing changes – the summary still gets truncated at about 20 characters.

    Am I doing something wrong, or maybe this doesn’t work with the free version?

    Thanks!

    Hello @briansteeleca

    In the current version of the plugin, the summary length affects only the search through the website. However, your search box was configured to search in the content of the current page only.

    Best regards.

    Sorry, I misunderstood the setting. And yes, I do only want to search on the current FAQ page, The search results would be more useful in this situation if there were more characters to give some context to the search.

    Thanks so much @codepeople, works great and is much more useful for searching on my FAQ page. I’ll definitely buy the premium version.
