Adjusting Length of [event_list] descriptions
Posted 05 April 2013 - 02:35 PM
One comment I've received is that the length of the excerpt for the event_list shortcode isn't quite long enough. I've manually adjusted the $trimmedexcerpt length to 100. By doing that though, I've totally screwed up my home page. I can mess around with layout a bit to fix that but thought I would send you some feedback anyway to say that as you're updating this plugin, increasing the length of the excerpt would be cool.
It seems like a bigger deal than just manually adjusting the length because then it gets into multi-line display and I think that's where the issues are coming from. I'm not a php'er so I'm not 100% sure but yeah, there's the feedback.
If you can think of a way to help me fix my page so that it displays correctly that would be sweet (but I'll keep tinkering). I think it's got something to do with the 1/3 column setup I've got.
Here's the link for your reference:
Here's a screenshot in case it looks amazing on your machine.

Ya I think I can push an update to allow you to change the excerpt length. Will make it out this weekend. To fix you're issue I'd delete, then re-install the section. It will keep your settings.
