    Hi,

    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.
