I cant work this out!!!
I have set my <em>kgr_safe_excerpt</em> to show only the first 20 words when in an article list. (incidentally column on my pages). You can see the problem with a gap below my headline on the first article.
For some reason on the first article (and only the first article) it ADDS extra
I tried Vagari code above but it doesnt seem to do anything?

I’m stumped. I have to admit that I really can’t see any reason for the extra <code><p></code> tags.

That’s odd Martagnan, it looks like the problem is in the form (from all the extra whitespace) but I don’t understand why it’d only be in the first list item. I don’t know if it’ll help but I’ll include my form.
<div class=”<txp:author_id />Box”>
<p><txp:kgr_safe_excerpt linktext=“…” words=“35” /></p>
<txp:posted /> – by <txp:author /> – <txp:comments_invite /></div>
Good luck, let us know if you figure it out. :)
Oh yeah, and I like the design on your site.

Well, I have been travelling the past few days, and I have also been very busy with schoolwork recently, but I’ll try to get an updated plugin released soon.
hi, i’m using this plugin quite happily…
wondering though whether there’s a way or an attribute that could be added to opt NOT to use the whole excerpt if there is one….
that is, if i want only the first 20 words of the article to show, kgr_safe_excerpt does that beautifully — until it comes across an article that has a manually-created excerpt.. then kgr_safe_excerpt prints the whole excerpt instead of the first 20 words… if i really just want 20 words to show..whether it’s 20 words of the article or 20 words of the excerpt.. how can i accomplish this?
Not working for me on the latest versions of Textpattern strangely enough…
Anyone have a fix? I’ve narrowed the problem down to the implode/explode functions area.
Maybe its just my server? www.winatpoker.com/page.php
