    I have been trying to figure out how to show shortened posts on my wp blog when using amazon and ebay feeds (with extra content) but having no success.

    None of the plugins I have tried work they just show the whole post. If I try hardcoding excerpt or more into the index template it just rips out everything and i just end up with a title.

    Basically I want to show the image, ad links and a few sentences underneath. Any ideas?

    Screw Wordpress and go to Blogger :)

    No, but in all reality, there is a plugin in the first page of the Downloads section at the moment that will solve those problems. Happy hunting!

    Just been through the first 10 pages can't see anything even close to fixing this problem but maybe I've gone blind from all my seraching and testing, but thanks for suggesting it.

    Try Custom Excerpts plugin. Its available in the plugins section at wordpress.org - sorry, can't post links

    I was looking for a plugin that could create excerpts from posts created by another plugin. I must have tested a dozen or more excerpt plugins & this was the only one that worked for me.

    Haven't tested it with Amazon/Ebay, but its the first one I would try.

    Hey thanks for the suggestion but it doesn't work with ebay and amazon. It either rips out the image or the links can't remember which as I have tried so many!
