Support » Developing with WordPress » Increasing characters/words from excerpt?

  • Hi there,

    I have teh following line that only outputs a few words from a post:

    <?php echo zigcy_lite_get_excerpt_content(absint($zigcy_lite_slider_excerpts));?>

    Can anyone tell me how I can increase the number of words, or if there is a way to display all words?

    Thanks!

  • You should ask in your theme’s support forum.

    I have used <?php the_excerpt(); ?> which seems to do it

    If you use the_excerpt() and are relying upon the automatic excerpt generation from content, you can use the ‘excerpt_length’ filter to manage how many words are excerpted from content. But if you use the dedicated excerpt field, this will have no effect.

    There’s half a chance the same filter would affect zigcy_lite_get_excerpt_content(), but we’ve no way of knowing for sure. For that you still should ask in your theme’s support channel, or just try it and see if it works.
