[resolved] Truncate Testimonials in Widget? (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    I'm currently fiddling around with your plugin and I was wondering, whether it's possible to limit the testimonials shown in the widget to a certain number of characters, i.e. prevent lengthy testimonials from screwing up the layout of a multi-column frontpage.

    Any hints will be greatly appreciated!

    Kind regards,

    Not at this time. I will look at adding that feature in the future.

    Great idea!

    Hey Matt, I just uploaded another update this morning 2.0.6 that adds filters.

    After you update, do the following:

    In your themes functions.php file add the following code:

    function limit_testimonial_text($text) {
    	return substr($text, 0, 100);
    add_filter('hms_testimonials_system_testimonial', 'limit_testimonial_text');

    It will then limit the testimonial text to 100 characters. If you need it more or less, adjust the 100 number.
