    I searched for "Custom Excerpts" but it returned a ton of irrelevant threads that happened to have those words but weren't about the plugin.

    Custom Excerpts is a plugin that, if it works, is cool. It will limit your excerpt to the number of words you specify and you can only limit it to certain types of html tags (so links don't show in the excerpt, for example).

    Anyway, it doesn't work for me. I installed it and my excerpts and posts are the same exact length they were before. Has anyone had this problem? I couldn't find any support on the site so I'm asking here.

    I just noticed that now that this plugin is working, my ads are no longer appearing on the main page (altho they still appear in the post's specific URL). I wonder if the text is not long enough for an ad to fit or something.
