Excerpt or Content Word Limit in WordPress: Redux.

Copy the below code and paste into Function.php.


function excerpt($limit) {

$excerpt = explode(' ', get_the_excerpt(), $limit);

if (count($excerpt)>=$limit) {

array_pop($excerpt);

$excerpt = implode(" ",$excerpt).'...';

} else {

$excerpt = implode(" ",$excerpt);

}

$excerpt = preg_replace('`\[[^\]]*\]`','',$excerpt);

return $excerpt;

}

function content($limit) {

$content = explode(' ', get_the_content(), $limit);

if (count($content)>=$limit) {

array_pop($content);

$content = implode(" ",$content).'...';

} else {

$content = implode(" ",$content);

}

$content = preg_replace('/\[.+\]/','', $content);

$content = apply_filters('the_content', $content);

$content = str_replace(']]>', ']]>', $content);

return $content;

}

Call this function where you want to display your limited content:like below.
