Dynamic blog excerpt length


I am having a hard time to find out where to set the length (words) of excerpts in my category pages. Since we set excerpts manually (more then 100 words) in each blog, we would like to show them entirely. I use the query template block.

The original excerpt above actually has more then 100 words…

Thanks a lot!

I don’t think it is something Cwicly is taking care of but here you can find different ways to adjust the length of your excerpt to your neeeds

Best with it,

Hello @Paolo,

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble getting your full length excerpt.
We don’t apply filter to modify this behaviour within Cwicly, but it is available as a dynamic value.

Is this using the Cwicly dynamic excerpt option?
Are you using the Cwicly theme?


Hello @Louis

Yes I use Cwiclys theme.

In my opinion, yes I am using the dynamic option. But who knows LOL…

I also wonder why it takes a random amount of words depending on the template…

I already tried different codes (as @JuGa was suggesting), but nothing changes.


Hello @Paolo,

That does seem very unusual. You haven’t set the Characters property to any specific value?

Hello @Louis

Not sure if you’re talking about these settings.


No ideas? Maybe somebody had the same issue… :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi @Paolo,

Sorry for our lack of reactivity on this.

Be sure to set your number of characters for your excerpt from the dynamic content settings panel.

Please let me know if this helps!


Uff!! Thanks a lot!!!
