Is there a way of pulling a excerpt from a custom textbox?

    Greetings dtaylor,

    Thank you for the great question.

    I will not say it is not possible due to anything is possible when one is a competent coder with a vision and a will to get it done – and I am not a coder.

    This also clearly falls within the realm of Custom Coding which is beyond the scope of the support we provide here though we do try to help in any event if we can.

    With that said, I will see if I can get the lead developer in here with his invaluable insight into this plugin for his advice/advise for us or perhaps a push in the right direction.

    Though this may take a bit longer then a normal ticket, I will try to get him in here asap.

    Cheers, Joe

    Is this above and beyond the standard Excerpt that’s in every post including Custom posts?

    If you want to use WordPress Excerpt functions it would be something like.

    $text = strip_shortcodes( $text );
    $text = wp_trim_words($text, 55);

    Which would cresate an excerpt 55 words long.
