The “Truncate Text” plugin is a simple and effective way to control the length of content displayed on your website. This plugin allows you to truncate text or shortcodes to a specified number of characters, with an ellipsis to indicate that the content has been shortened.
– Turn this: 0x8755B12f034ee7b2383fCF5E849201C71622CC44
– Into this: 0x8755…22CC44
To use the plugin, you simply need to wrap the content you want to truncate in a shortcode. For example, if you want to truncate a piece of text to a maximum of 6 characters at the start and 6 characters at the end, you would use the following shortcode:
Your c...t here. The plugin will then truncate the content to 12 characters, including the ellipsis in the middle to indicate that the content has been shortened.
In addition to truncating text, the plugin also includes a “Truncate Shortcode” function that allows you to truncate content that includes other shortcodes. This is especially useful for complex websites that use a lot of shortcodes to display dynamic content.
To use the “Truncate Shortcode” function, simply wrap the content you want to truncate in a shortcode, just like with the text truncation. For example:
Your c...] here.
Overall, the “Truncate Text” plugin is a simple and effective way to control the length of content displayed on your website, giving you more control over the visual appearance of your pages and posts.
