Tag Groups - Premium Plans

Tag Groups, Version 1.42.0: More Post Template Options for Excerpts

This release enables you to configure the length of the post excerpt and the ellipsis after the truncated text.

This release of the Tag Groups plugin (“premium” plan) enables you to configure the length of the post excerpt and the ellipsis (the dots after truncated text, or any other characters you choose). This has also been possible before using WordPress filters but from now on you don’t have to write any code.

The excerpt length and the ellipsis work both for the {post_excerpt} and the {post_excerpt_html} placeholder. In the case of {post_excerpt_html} we even try to make sure that the HTML code remains valid no matter where the excerpt was truncated.

You find the two new settings in the Front End settings under the Post Template tag.

If the values are grayed out and write-protected, some other code uses the filter excerpt_length or excerpt_more to programmatically set them. If you don’t know where it stems from, deactivate other plugins one-by-one, switch to a default theme or check the file functions.php of your active theme.
