    We’re building a directory of holistic medical providers and would like to have only an image and a small blurb for the listing slider; however, it pulls in all of the listing, rather than just part of it (and some are quite long).

    I understand that there’s an option to limit the size of each listing, but is there any way to allow the members to input whatever length they choose but to limit the length in the slider?

    Here’s the site we’re working on:

    You can immediately see what I mean, I hope.

    Thanks for any help!

    hi Pat,

    you mean the listings displayed to your homepage?

    You can try to go to Theme setup > page setup > Search Page > enable custom display and remove description .

    Hello Pat,
    You can limit the description users enter under Theme Setup >Listing Setup >Settings >Listing Setup Options >Min. Description Length
    You can limit the length of the description displayed in a listing/search page under Appearance >Editor >content-listing-directory.php Change the shortcode [EXCERPT] to [EXCERPTsize=200] .Change the size (200) to what you want
