    Using the Eleven40 theme – is it possible to limit the length of the first post on the HOME page?

    See the demo for an example:

    http://demo.studiopress.com/eleven40/

    In this example -the first post is too long (for my intended application).  I would like to limit the post content character limit of the FIRST POST just as I do the remaining posts are – shown on the front page.

    Is this possible?

    Have you tried just using a line break?

    Thanks wp guy – but I am not trying to limit the horizontal length of a line.

    I am trying to show – for example – only 500 characters of the first page post – instead of the entire 5000 characters that make up that post.  I do not want the entire 5000 characters to appear on the front / Home page.

    Yes, and and the “insert more” tag should do the trick in your editor. If you have 5,000 words and only want a portion to show, place your cursor anywhere in the text click the “insert more” button. Anything below that won’t show.

    Oh –

    Yes, clicking on the WordPress “more” button in the editor enters the command <!–more–>

    I have never know this was there as a function of WordPress.  That is a good tip to know.

    This will work nicely for me.

    Thanks wp guy.
