TOPIC: Sentence Count

Sentence Count 2 days, 15 hours ago #425

It appears that the extension ignore Sentence Count when there is a Read More also in the article. Any workaround? We want the Read More inserted at the time of article creation but it should be ignored when it is Featured.

Re: Sentence Count 1 day, 18 hours ago #428

Actually it is not the case the module ignores the parameter. The problem is down to the fact that Joomla splits the article text into two different database fields, introtext and fulltext.

It is not clear from what you are saying which module you are referring to, but to solve it you will need to find the appropriate helper file in the module, and in the code replace



$row->introtext.' '.$row->fulltext

wherever you see it in the code.

If you would like to be a bit more specific about which module you are using, and which version of Joomla then I can be a bit more specific about the precise code you need to change.

I am using featured items pro latest version with Joomla 1.7.5

Maybe what we are trying to do is not possible. We have articles where we insert the Read More after the first sentence or so. When an article is the featured article of the day we need to display much more of the article. We were using your module for the Featured article and set the sentence count to 30. It was our hope that when an article was the featured article and hence using your module that the Read More would be ignored and instead the sentence count would be used.

OK, I understand what you are saying. The approach I suggested above should accomplish this.

The easiest way to do this in fact is to edit the module help.php file, look for lines 302 and 303

		foreach ( $rows as $row )

Immediately after that add an exta line:-

		foreach ( $rows as $row )
$row->introtext = $row->introtext.' '.$row->fulltext;

That should be all that you need to do, then the entire article text should be available from which the extract can then be taken.
