When a person visit the blog page of your oxwall powered website, by default, the persons sees a long list of full blog posts, believe me, people don’t need to see all that. You can limit what they see by truncating the blog items, this means that instead of seeing the full blog post (default), people will now see only the post details (post details include: title, author name, author picture and date) and a short preview (possible the first paragraph of each post) of the blog index items, they will now have to click on the read more buttons to view the full blog content.
How to Truncate your Blog Items
- Logon to ftp/cpanel
- Download and edit this file /ow_plugins/blogs/controllers/blog.php
- Using a code editor, edit /ow_plugins/blogs/controllers/blog.php
- Find this code:
$text = explode("<!--more-->", $dto->getPost());
- and replace it with:
$text = explode("<!--more-->", UTIL_String::truncate( strip_tags($dto->getpost()), 539, "<!--more-->" ) );
- Save your changes.
