Re: fly_excerpt - Truncate Article Excerpt

Suppose you have an article like this:

There is <b>bold text</b> in this line.

If you set truncate to 3, then your plugin creates the following excerpt:

There is <b>bold

But it should be:

There is <b>bold</b>

In reply to ruud #288308:

Hey ruud,
Thanks for the feedback! I made a quick Hotfix, until I can come up with a better solution, I striped the HTML Code from the Excerpt.

Re: fly_excerpt - Truncate Article Excerpt

thank you for this one!
Maybe you should mention, that one has to wrap the excerpt with tags.
<p><txp:fly_excerpt truncate="50" /></p>

At least <txp:excerpt /> returns the text already inside <p> tags.

Re: fly_excerpt - Truncate Article Excerpt

cool plugin. one of the reasons that i don’t use the excerpt very much was that one could not truncate the output.

I think one for <body> would also be cool. i.e.

<p><txp:fly_body_excerpt  truncate="50" /></p>

ps can one wrap the tag in If / Else for those times when there is no <excerpt> ?

Re: fly_excerpt - Truncate Article Excerpt

Wow: only 19 posts and two three1 plugins as a present to the community!

Nice site, too, BTW.

1 : Apart the previous fly_cat_restriction and the brand new fly_excerpt I discovered also this: Amazon & LastFM plugin (with the old – not standard – fw prefix). I’m asking if are there others…

there is a native tag for that.

<txp:if_excerpt>
<p><txp:fly_excerpt truncate="50" /></p>
<txp:else />
</txp:if_excerpt>
