Events Adjusting Length of [event_list] descriptions

Question

Posted · Report post

Hey Nick,

 

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.

Thanks,

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.

 

Nick
