A simple word count / excerpt plugin for ExpressionEngine

branch: master
README.md

Excerpt Plugin

Wrap anything you want to be processed between the tag pairs. This will strip out all tags automatically and do a limit on words after.

{exp:excerpt limit="50"}text you want processed{/exp:excerpt}

Parameters

Use the following parameters to specify what the plugin should return.

limit="5"

The limit parameter lets you specify how many words or characters to return. Default 500

limit_type="words"

The limit_type parameter lets you specify if you want to limit to words (words) or characters (chars).
When limiting to chars, the plugin returns whole words, so the actual number of charactars migh be slightly larger.

{exp:excerpt limit="2" limit_type="chars"}Hello World{/exp:excerpt}
returns: Hello

indicator="..."

The indicator parameter can be used to append characters onto the end of the content, if it has been limited.

{exp:excerpt limit="1" indicator="..."}Hello World{/exp:excerpt}
more than limit words, returns: Hello...

{exp:excerpt limit="2" indicator="..."}Hello World{/exp:excerpt}
Not limited, returns: Hello World
