Feature Request: Ability to ignore tags in excerpts for featured images/posts.

Recommended Posts

techinferno

Ok so for my site (Tech|Inferno) we use featured images at the top with excerpts which works great except for one little problem: We want to switch to a format where we can use optional image tags for review excerpts (to differentiate them from normal news posts) yet if we try this, the image shows up in the featured image up top. So I'd like to request the addition of a feature that lets us choose to ignore excerpts for featured posts so this does not happen. Either that or put in code that strips tags (specified by user) in featured images but are still displayed in the excerpt of the blog post. If you are not clear as to what I'm talking about, scroll down to the bottom review titled "Alienware TactX Review": http://www.techinferno.com/page/3/ I put an image there in the excerpt but I had to use breaks to hide it up top in the featured image.

That doesn't solve the problem. I want images in my excerpts, that's the whole point. :) I just don't want them showing up in the excerpt for featured images up top. I'd like a way for the featured slider to ignore excerpts or strip out image tags.
