  • [CMS] How do I change the character limit on section view?

    I have my 'show full article on section' to false on purpose. I only want the first 1000 characters to show. However, it looks like its getting cut off at like 5 sentences on the front page. How / where do I edit this setting?

      you can manually edit the preview break in the editor, bottom icon on the right, no idea how to set it to automatically break at a certain character limit though.

        The preview break is problematic but will get you by. My experience is that the preview break adds a line break to your page wherever you place it every time you save the article. You have to manually fix (Put it back where it was) the line break in code view every time you open the article. So - I would also like to know where the setting is that controls who many characters show up without the preview break. I have seen this asked before but have never seen an answer.
