I am using the Latest News plugin (made by James Piggot, plugin website is here) and I have inserted code that displays 5 of the latest news items in the sidebar area.
It's working fine, and displays all I need it to display. However, I want to be able to display the first few lines of the news article with a "Read More" link after it. There doesn't seem to be a way to do that with this plugin, and instead it displays the entire contents of the latest news item in the side bar.
Does anyone have any experience using this plugin who could help guide me to restricting the amount of the post it displays?
If it can't be achieved using this plugin, is there a plugin out there that I could use that would allow me to do what I need to do?
