The Activity Stream seems to be truncating
Hmm.. I feel like I’m not explaining it right, or maybe I don’t understand something. I found a lot of posts on how to truncate the activity feed, but what they are describing as the activity feed doesn’t sound like what I’m talking about… I’m sure someone has asked this question, so I feel like I’m not asking it right.
Maybe if someone looked at my page, they would understand what I mean?
Here’s a link. Under the Featured Articles Lite box, the first post is hundreds of words long.
I know that there is the “Insert More Tag” when you are actually posting an article, but my site will allow anyone that’s a registered member to post articles on the main page. This could cause trouble if I can’t figure out a way to truncate posts after a certain number of words. It’s not a big deal if someone wants to write a novel in a post… but if it displays the full novel on my front page, my website is doomed. I can’t trust that people will be able to figure out what that button does on their own.
I really feel like I’m not asking the question correctly. Because it seems like this option should be an option in the buddypress menu, I feel like I’m just a noob and I don’t know what I’m looking for.
Thanks again for any help you can provide.
I went to “Reading Settings” and selected “Summary” for each article feed, but it’s still displaying the full posts… I must be missing something simple.
@covandy You might take a look at EventPress. It has a lot of potential, but I ran into a usability issue with it. It was just too confusing for the normal user.
