    Hi !

    I need to limit the displayed activity excerpt to 9 words.

    Is it possible to achieve this?

    Best regards

    MG

    Hello Michel,

    Thank you for posting. BuddyPress provides a filter to control the excerpt length. Use the following code

    
    /**
     * Modify excerpt length. Return no. of characters in activity excerpt.
     *
     * @param int $length Length.
     *
     * @return int
     */
    function buddydev_modify_excerpt_length( $length ) {
    	$length = 100;
    
    	return $length;
    }
    add_filter('bp_activity_excerpt_length', 'buddydev_modify_excerpt_length' );
    
    

    Please check.

    Regards
    Ravi
