Re: Changing excerpt length

I created a folder in Plugins called extend-excerpt and put your code in a file called extend-excerpt.php. It showed up in plugins and I activated it. It had no effect. I think what I'm experiencing may be an interaction between WP 4.9.7 and some long-forgotten modification I haven't been able to lo...

Re: Changing excerpt length

I appreciate the help, but I'm afraid that you've lost me. Should this be a standalone file? Named what and in what directory? Invoked where and how? This all may be futile since the my RSS feed clearly is not limited to the default length. I can't find what I did years ago to extend it to the full,...

Re: Changing excerpt length

Thanks for the reply.

Re: Changing excerpt length

OK, so I'm trying to change how much of the manually entered excerpt for a post is employed for the RSS summary. I've tried adding this to the theme's functions.php file but it has no effect. function custom_excerpt_length( $length ) { return 20; } add_filter( 'excerpt_length', 'custom_excerpt_lengt...

Re: Changing excerpt length

Before I move on to editing the functions.php file, I have one little issue with the Suffusion version update. I exported the settings from my old version and imported them into the new version. Most worked. Most that didn't, I was able to adjust. It *says* it's using my custom background color, but...

Changing excerpt length

I'm using Suffusion 4.0.4 on WordPress 4.9.7. I can't figure out where to make a change to control the excerpt length. I'm mainly concerned with its use as the summary for RSS. It's clearly not still set to the default 55 words but everything I've read seems to point me to functions.php in the theme...
