Adjusting excerpt text limit in WP/Helium on blog list pages

  • Adjusting excerpt text limit in WP/Helium on blog list pages

    Posted 3 years 3 months ago
    • Helium for Wordpress does not seem to use any excerpt limit other than from the Read More tag. I've tried to apply a static character limit as people have done on other standard (non-gantry) WP themes but it didn't work with Helium. It looks like Helium uses the excerpt field on each post but I can't find any controls to limit it.

      How can I limit the number of words or characters shown in a blog post's excerpt?

    • You will need to override this file:
      /views/partials/content.html.twig
      copy it here:
      custom/views/partials/content.html.twig

      and try to replace this line 46:
      <div class="post-excerpt">{{ post.post_excerpt|apply_filters('the_excerpt')|raw }}</div>

      with this:
      <div class="post-excerpt">{{ post.post_excerpt|apply_filters('the_excerpt')|truncate_text(45) }}</div>
    • Available for CUSTOM WORK with Joomla, WordPress and Grav Templates and Gantry Framework!

    • Awesome! Thank you. That worked great.

      Sorry to ask but since you seem to know what you are doing (and since this is in the same area of the site) any idea how to answer this question as well:

      www.rockettheme.com/forum/free-wordpress...w-to-do-in-wp-helium

      It looks like the fix should be in the very next section of that same file you just had me change but I don't have a clue on how to do it...
