including an excerpt from an article body?
for an RSS feed, is there any simple way to extract the first X lines/chars/bytes/whatever from the article's Body?
I use the teaser field to contain the text for the rss feed and pages that list all of the articles. That way I can control where it stops.
yep... the problem with the teaser approach is that it's extra work at authoring time on the human.... was hoping there'd be a machine way to do this...
