    Sorry, me again :-((

    I have questions to the widget “Newscast Sidebar News”:

    - If I do NOT put an extra text excerpt in my post editor, then the text in the footer widget is much too long.

    Question: how and where can I limit the words of the excerpt by myself?

    - If I DO an text excerpt within my post editor, then the text is limited to this excerpt, that’s ok, but this signs:

    [...]

    are missing then. These “[...]” is available only if NO excerpt is written.

    Question:

    where, in which file must I put this “[...]” for showing after my own text excerpts?

    It looks at the moment like this:

    First posting I have written NO extra text excerpts. The theme has limited it to much too many words.

    In the second posting below it, I have written my own, extra text excerpt. But there is no: “[...]“.

    the [...] sign is added by wordpress if you dont add a manual excerpt, its nothing I do with my theme. so if you want this to appear on hand crafted excerpts as well you just need to add it to the end. ALso the size of the automatic excerpt is defined by wordpress and not by the theme.

    it seems its working fine on your site. if you want to edit the length you need to add a filter function to your functions.php code. here is a tutorial:

    Thanks a lot … I’ve found this filter function yesterday night resp. today early morning in the codex :-)
