Add-On Type(s)



This plugin lets you specify how many characters you'd like to limit for a string and append something at the end, usually a ellipsis (three dots).

It won’t break a word up, and if it finds a punctuation symbol at the end of the string after being limited, it will remove that.

Tags (HTML, PHP) are stripped from the output, so this plugin’s primary usage is for titles, though can be used for other things.


{exp:trim_title chars="10" append="..."}
