I’ve got the latest version of wordpress installed.
I’m writing text into the excerpt box in the ‘add new post’ box of the admin system and then calling this via the_excerpt() function.
I’ve tried several ways of changing the default excerpt length from 55 to 10 words, including changing the excerpt_length in the formatting.php file, as well as adding the well known functions within my own theme’s functions template that I found in the codex.
Can anyone give me any pointers or codes where they have been successful in trimming the excerpt length?
