Divi Theme 188.8.131.52
Second Attempt Please Understand that something is "WRONG" with trying to fix excerpt length in the normal way of fixing it. The typical functions.php and filter methods are breaking the site. Even a robust plugin such as https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-custom-auto-excerpt causes all posts to disappear.
I would like the excerpt length to be adjustable and to be set as shown in the attached image. I trust your expertise but PLEASE understand this has not been a "normal" or "typical" issue to solve. I hope we can get it this time!
