  • This is more of a feedback post than anything.

    When ever we share anything; we only include the post EXCERPT in the text

    “For example:

    %CATS%: %TITLE% – %RAWEXCERPT%

    …Click Link Below for Full Article”

    We want people to click the link so we include some text as a Call to Action.

    But sometimes we make short posts / announcements, which means that actually what’s shared on the FB Post is all they see on the website and people have fed back that it is annoying.

    It would be nice if there were such a feature to allow additional text to be displayed if the full article is longer than the excerpt length.

  • Hi!

    And what if you create a two separate account in the SNAP?

    For example.

    If you know that the post is long. You leave as is now.
    With phrase “Click Link Below for Full Article”

    And if the post is short. Then you use an account where there is no phrase “Click Link Below for Full Article”.

    And publish you post with second account.

    What about this idea?

    English is not my native language, so sorry 🙂
    But the main result.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I’m really looking for an automated method.

    I’m having to go to the sharing section on the post to manually adjust the text today and the method to use an alternative account wouldn’t really save me any more time.

    I also cannot always be sure exactly what the ‘excerpt’ length will be ahead of sharing it.

    proccess

    Yes, the automatic option will be the best.
    Let’s think about whether it is possible to do it in a simple way.

    Firstly.

    to manually adjust the text today

    I did not quite understand, why you need to change the text? You can create two accounts with already filled templates

    I also cannot always be sure exactly what the ‘excerpt’ length will be ahead of sharing it.

    You can make an automatic option.
    It is possible to find an option in the filter setup.
    Find one of the parameters of the post, specify it for a long post. Then filter it, and publish it in the account where the template is prepared for the long one.

    These are the complex schemes.

    Otherwise, only editing the plug-in program code itself.
