Version 2010.1011 of FWP+: Limit Size Of Posts is now available: sentence counts, break-points, and much, much <!–more–>(posted on 08 November 2010)

I’m pleased to announce that version 2010.1011 of FWP+: Limit Size Of Posts is now available for download.

This release introduces several new features to provide more refined control over how to limit the size of posts, and what should happen when the size of a post is limited:

  • You can now choose whether a post that exceeds the size you set should be simply cut off, or should have the remainder of the post hidden behind a “Read More…” break.

  • You can now choose to limit the size of posts by number of characters, word count, or number of sentences.

  • You can also choose to have the filter attempt to locate break-points that were inserted into a story by the original author on the source website. (I.e., points where the remainder of the story is hidden behind a “Read More…” jump — the kind of break you would use <!--more--> to create in WordPress. FWP+: Limit Size Of Posts is capable of automatically detecting break-points from most popular blogging platforms, including WordPress, Blogger, and LiveJournal. If you opt to use this method, the filter will first look for a manual break-point, and, only if it cannot find one, it will fall back on any other length-limiting rules that you may have set up.

Many thanks for this release are due to Karl Haro von Mogel, whose generous donations helped make it possible for me to devote the time needed to make these improvements to the add-on.

    FWP+: Limit size of posts

    Add a filter

    ‘Get feed only if the size exceeds xxx words’. That will eliminate posts that have only a headline and nothing else.

    This is just what i need but i think it does not work with the latest version. Is it possible?

  3. Mark says:

    The Limit Size of Posts plugin does not seem to be working. I don’t see the option anywhere to filter the posts and add “Read More.” I am running the latest version of WordPress. I am also running the Add Atttribution plugin version 2010.0207.

    This addon to FeedWordPress does not appear to be working with FWP versions 2011.0706 and newer. The admin interface shows the ability to select it, but it doesn’t actually take effect on the syndicated posts.

    I still use your Plugin (even if it is not updated for a long time). I think it’s a wonderful plugin. But sadly the Download of This Plugin: FWP+: Limit Size Of Posts doesn’t work. Could you update the download link please! Would be much appreciated!

    Thanks Fabio

    This add-on for limiting the size of posts is not available for download on your page — have you taken it down?

    I want to be able to control the length of the excerpts it creates, but also have the longer content for the full-post view. This add-on sounds perfect.

    Hey, the download is broken (404). Would it be possible to fix it? Thanks :)

    Hi, is there a way to make this add-on work with the latest version of FeedWordpress? :) Thank you!
