It’s very nice! Can I somehow limit the number of characters in an excerpt?
There is a site setting in discourse
topic_excerpt_maxlength . IIRC this will only apply to new topics - if you want to apply the change to existing topics you will need to ‘rebake’ them.
Thanks, How i can ‘rebake’ them?
This command don’t help me:
$ cd /var/discourse $ ./launcher enter app $ rake posts:rebake
What happened? Did it show an error?
Change in site settings:
# cd /var/discourse # ./launcher enter app # rake posts:rebake Rebaking post markdown for 'default' 4805 / 4805 (100.0%) 4805 posts done!
And the excerpts are still more than 100 characters? Is the change working for new topics?
Don’t working for new topics too
How to solve this problem? Any ideas?
Is this the right setting? I noticed my excerpts are as long as 300 characters, which is the default setting for
post excerpt maxlength.
I have not been able to get this change to work.
I am looking to change the length of the preview excerpt when someone on my forum pastes a link to another topic on my forum. Basically, the length of this (only for posts within my forum):
Right now, the preview is very long (400 characters). I have tried changing both the “post_excerpt_maxlength” setting, as well as the “topic_excerpt_maxlength” setting. Neither made a difference for this–including for new topics created after the setting was changed.
How can I adjust this setting to make the previews shorter when I link to another post on my forum?
