If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Just wondering if it is possible to set a different […] limit for the Newscast sidebar news area? I’d rather have bit shorter text here and keep the WP-regulated post lenght for the posts.
The Sidebar News widget should display the content of the_excerpt() as defined on the post editor page.
If you do not provide an explicit excerpt to a post (in the post editor’s optional excerpt field), it will display an automatic excerpt which refers to the first 55 words of the post’s content, followed by the […]. Also HTML tags and graphics are stripped from the excerpt’s content.
This is a built in WordPress function, so to display a custom excerpt, use the excerpt field.
