There used to be all kinds of plugins for EE 2 that let you shorten a variable (or any string, really), some from EllisLab as well as a number of third-party ones. Some let you specify the number of words, some were even HTML aware, etc.

What are my options at this point for working with EE 3? I haven't seen one of them converted. Do I really have to use raw PHP?


I was going to convert them for you, when I found that both HTML-Attribute-Content and Word-Limit already have compatible branchs.

  • OK, that's kind of embarrassing. Thanks anyway, accepting your answer (obviously). – Ingmar Dec 20 '15 at 12:30

In the spirit of providing additional options, check out Streeng as well.
