Originally from ticket #388.
Hi, could you please tell me how to extend the length of the post excerpt on the home page? I would like it to extend down alongside the image further. *I tried editing it in functions.php but that did not work.
you can modify the excerpt length by opening /lib/php/post.class.php file, and, depending in which view you are interested (function grid_view() or function list_view() ) please modify the "$ln" value. In grid_view () by default is $ln = 180, in list_view - $ln = 300.
Try to modify these values.
