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:
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.
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.
