Thread: Limit the size of the description text in the category listing

    Limit the size of the description text in the category listing

    Hey.
    Is there a way to limit description text in the category listings (where all adverts are displayed together) to only lets say 2 lines or 100 characters? Right now it will display all text which makes scrolling through the adds time consuming. The link to my website https://www.4muso.com

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Hi Curtis.
    I have attached the photo oft the listing with the description enabled in the browse mode. It displays all advert. Is there any chance to make this description shorter? Maybe with the the text 'read more' or just simple by shortening the add and adding '...' at the end. It will be much easier to browse through the adds.

    Thanks a lot

    1. open file: /templates/general_wide/tpl/blocks/listing.tpl in row ~68:


    Code:
    Only registered members can view the code.

    2. and replace it to following:

    Is there a way to do this instead of line-height etc by using the number of chars, for example as in a news post please?
