the_content shortcode and length limitation

Woocommerce users definitely need {content} rather then excerpt and an option to limit the text lenght (50,100,150 letters)

Documentation on how to add custom shortcode rendering to the posts would also be awesome.

Hi There,

We have added this feature in the latest version 2.8.7

We have added a support for content limit and custom field shortcode.

{content-digits} - displays the post content with define number of digits in template tag. E.g. If you add template like {content-100} then it will display first 100 characters from post content

{CF-CustomFieldName} - inserts the contents of the custom field with the specified name. E.g. If your price is stored in the custom field "PRDPRICE" you will need to use {CF-PRDPRICE} tag.

Enjoy the new release. :)

    We are in a planning to add this feature to the main plugin.

    Yes, i get your point, but mainly Woocommerce users only use plain text or at least your plugin could grab the text out of the html. I mean, it would be a “simple” task to add it and as far as i can see, a few other users requested this as well?

    Thank you

    Hello soniccube,

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    Many of users are using a page builders with a ready made short codes which written code with HTML so, we can’t send this type of content to the social media as it will not accept content with HTML. That’s why we are just providing support for excerpt instead of content.

    I hope you got my point.
