first few characters only


Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

hi, does anyone know how to use PHP to take the first few words of a text and limit them? i have seen this in many news sites where the news story headline reads like "woman found in obama's bedroom today at....... read more. ('read more' is a link)

what i am looking for is something that says i will take the first 100 characters of the entry and then print "...read more" as a link to the full story.

thanks
