    Hi,

    the “sidebar news” widget ignores my <!–more–> tag in the post for limiting the excerpt of the post text shown in the sidebar.

    • What can I do, that it takes effect?
    • And besides: how can I limit the excerpts to a certain number of characters in this widget?
    • In the following screenshot, I have set the “more”-tag of this post after:

      startet am 1. November für einen Monat. <!--more-->

      but the widget stops once sentence later:

      Thanks in advance.

    sorry, haven’t known anymore, that I’ve asked this one year ago.

    The solution for a general excerpt lenght is here:

    But:

    There’s still the question, why my more-tag in the post doesn’t work for the sidebar-news-widget.

    In some cases I would like to cut the excerpt length individually.

    What can I do, so that the more-tag in the post takes really effect in the sidebar-news-widget?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey!

    In newscastframeworktheme_widgetssidebar_news.php replace:

    the_excerpt();

    with:

    the_content('');

    Regards,

    Peter
