TOPIC: Main Page View - Topics and a defined char limit

Main Page View - Topics and a defined char limit 8 years 5 months ago #16170

I'm getting ready to transition my blog from using corephp's wordpress to RS Blog. When I set up the menu item for the blog home page I select Rs Blog --> Blog View. This works fine, but when I go to the Public view of the blog it list all published blog entries with the entire blog content. The basic problem with this is that it is way too much information to display on the page and it scrolls forever.

What I want for it to do is to list some defined number of topics (perhaps 10-20) along with some content from the blog, an intro from each entry, say 100-200 characters, with a "more ..." link to view the entire entry.

I went through the configuration options but don't see any way to do this. I'm running this on a Joomla 1.5 site. How do we accomplish this need?

Hello,

If you take a look at the Components > RSBlog! > Configuration > General, you will notice the "Truncate Blog Posts" option.
