Great plugin! Thanks!

Works great!

This plugin saved my butt. Very easy to use and does what it promises.

Would like if the photo links in the excerpt would retain the ability to open images in Simple Lightbox.

Other than that, the plugin is perfect.

It's basically a visual editor for Excerpts. It works great and is exactly what I needed.

Just works!

It "simply" works, and that's the only one with the latests WP versions.
Thanks!

Works Perfectly!

Thank you, thank you, thank you - this is a life saver. And BTW to add excerpts to a custom post use this:

add_action('init', 'my_custom_init');
function my_custom_init() {
	add_post_type_support( 'NAME_OF_CUSTOM_POST', 'excerpt' );
}

Once you have done that the custom post name appears in the settings for this plugin and you can check the box to enable it.

Brilliant!

Useful if you need formatted excerpts

A useful plugin for anyone who wants to display formatted excerpts.

Simple and effective

The same thing can probably be achieved with a bit of php knowledge, but this plugin is very neat and simple.

Perfect, pain-free editing for your excerpts!

The links and other TinyMCE functions work as they should for me, just to counter the comment left by someone else who seemed to have a problem.

Not working correctly
By , for WP 3.5.1

Excerpt box has added tool bar functionality, Html links don't work. Minimal excerpt lines are not functional.

*Note:
I did not reach out to author for support. Don't have time to trouble shoot a plugin that should work out of the box.
