Lively blogpost number of characters for teaser is different

Hi,

when I use lively blogpost the teaser length is different for the blogposts. Despite I have set the number of characters to 150 I have got now one blogpost with 67 characters and another one with 147 characters. There is no Enter or something like that in the text and the title for the 67 character text is even shorter than the other one.

What can I do?

Thank you very much for information.

Kind regards,

Julia Pfeiffer

Hi Julia,

the teaser text is by default generated from the stored content, not the rendered content.
So one reason could be that parts of the text are generated by a macro and not stored on the page, so they are unavailable for the teaser.

The other reason could be that currently all links including the link text are removed from the teaser. We will probably change that in a future version, but for now links will not be included.
Is your text formatted in any special way or is it just plain text?

What you also can do ist use the excerpt macro, to tell the blog post macro exactly how the teaser should look like. When a page contains an excerpt macro, then the rendered content of this macro will be used for the teaser.

Kind regards,

Georg
