Force excerpts at all times​

When Force excerpts at all times is set to Yes ActiveMember360 will automatically create an excerpt for pages and posts that do not have one.

It will use the content of the page/post to generate the excerpt.

The maximum length of the automatically generated excerpt is determined by the setting of ActiveMember360, Settings, Excerpts, Max. length for WP-generated excerpts.

Beware

Please take particular care when using this option with page builders or content containing shortcodes.

You should check you do not expose more content in the excerpt than desired.

In all cases it is best to use a manual excerpt for each page/post.

Default: No
