Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Yep, wrapreadmore doesn’t seem to work with 4.2.0… Wasn’t there another plugin that can do that?

Thanks Els,

You must be wondering… I keep posting about bugs that no one else seems to have! Starting to doubt my sanity ;-P Cheers.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

It hadn’t crossed my mind yet ;) Maybe you can post how you are using the tag, so we can try and figure out why it’s not working for you?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

I’m trying to install this plugin on TXP 4.2, and it isn’t working at all. No matter what variables I put in the tag, I get the same result as if I’d used <txp:excerpt />.

I saw that some of you are running it fine in 4.2. Any ideas?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

You don’t by any chance still have the standard <txp:excerpt /> tag in your code do you? The plugin won’t over-ride the standard tag if it is being used.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

I don’t. I wanted to use the plugin only for articles from certain sections, using the <txp:if_section> and <txp:else /> tags, but that’s wasn’t working, so I tried using rss_auto_excerpt for all of them. Still showing the entire excerpt…

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

Could you post the code for your form David, see if there’s something odd in there?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_auto_excerpt

This is how I want it to work. I also tried it with just the plugin on all sections, and got nothing that way either.

<txp:if_article_section name=“scanner,fitzgerald,sessions,harris”>

<span class=“article_text”><txp:rss_auto_excerpt sentences=“1” striptags=“1” showlinkwithexcerpt=“0” /></span>

<txp:else />

<span class=“article_text”><txp:excerpt /></span>

</txp:if_article_section>

From the plugin help page:

If for some articles you have defined an excerpt, your own excerpt will be displayed rather than the auto-generated excerpt. You can also override this feature so that an auto-generated excerpt is always displayed even if an excerpt has been defined.

So what you need to do is:
Option 1. delete whatever is in your “Excerpt” fields in the articles
Option 2. use it with overrideexcerpt="1" excerpt="body"
like this: <txp:rss_auto_excerpt overrideexcerpt="1" excerpt="body" sentences=“1” striptags=“1” showlinkwithexcerpt=“0” />
