the_content_limit in the sidebar (8 posts)

    I have this code in my sidebar... the content shows true (first 80 characters) when a category is displayed but when a single post is displayed the sidebar displays all the content (more than 80 characters). This is very weird behaviour, there is no other conditional statements that i can see. Any ideas???

    Thanks CG

    <?php $recent = new WP_Query("showposts=3"); while($recent->have_posts()) : $recent->the_post();?>
    <?php if( get_post_meta($post->ID, "thumbnail", true) ): ?>
    " rel="bookmark"><img style="float:left;margin:0px 10px 0px 0px;" src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, "thumbnail", true); ?>" alt="alt text" />
    <?php else: ?>
    " rel="bookmark"><img style="float:left;margin:0px 10px 0px 0px;" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/thumbnail.jpg" alt="Default thumbnail" />
    <?php endif; ?>
    <b>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></b>
    <?php the_content_limit(80, "read more »"); ?>

    <div style="border-bottom:1px dotted #94B1DF; margin-bottom:10px; padding:0px 0px 10px 0px; clear:both;"></div>
    <?php endwhile; ?>'

    I want to display all my contents within the_content_limit() in the sidebar. But the problem is, only part of my content was displayed in the sidebar. So, whats the remedy for displaying all my content in the sidebar.

    Hi ashafaaiz, I do not clearly understand your problem mate, do you want to use the_content_limit function in the sidebar but to display all your post content ?
    On my side, I have another problem :-) : what plugin or trick must I use to define the_content_limit function, I try to use it in my default theme, I tried some plugins, none of them work up to now, I still have this fatal error undefined function problem..

    perthmetro, sorry man, I cannot help you now, perhaps once I'll know how to define the_content_limit ;-)

    I am having the same problem as perthmetro above.

    the_content_limit works fine on all pages except for single post pages

    you can see single post excepts at the bottom of this page

    on this page you can see the text over flows

    Anyone know why this tag breaks on the single post page?

    Anyone ever resolve this issue? I'm having the same problem. Namely, the_content_limit works everywhere except on single post pages. I'm not using a plugin. The command is built into the theme.

    Any thoughts?
