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.
