Is there an easy way to get the first paragraph of a wysiwyg. In this instance I want to add it without the enclosing <p> tags into a Facebook og:description tag.

I used the hacksaw plugin:

{exp:eehive_hacksaw cutoff="</p>"}{copy}{/exp:eehive_hacksaw}

  • Glad you found a solution, but just NSM Better Meta or just a plain text-field in your field-group would have been cleaner IMO.

  • Yeah, this would include any HTML in the field, as well as images, tables, etc. And a WYSIWYG field doesn't necessarily have to contain any paragraphs. I'd suggest adding a plain textarea field for the Description. Or using an SEO plugin like SEO Lite. Nov 29, 2016 at 17:38
