Add-On Type(s)



Truncating plain text and HTML has never been easier thanks to this powerful, intuitive add-on for both EE1 and EE2.


- Specify length to truncate text to (pretty important really!)
- Specify whether to truncate to the middle of a word or fall back to the last full word
- Add suffixes to truncated text
- HTML tags automatically closed for you!
- If text contains HTML, these are ignored when calculating the length to truncate to


The following example code is a potential way to use the plugin. Substitute ‘weblog’ for ‘channel’ if using EE2:

{exp:weblog:entries weblog="news" limit="5"}
  {exp:power_truncate length="200" cut_words="n" suffix="..."}
