    in 3.7 there was a feature to select a summary of the actual blog post and then specify how many words you wanted to display before the more info link was displayed.

    how is this set in 4.0, is there a similar feature we can implement?

    thanks for your insight.

    Hi Brandon,

    You can have a look at our SDK - the Charity starter kit has this functionality applied to the blog system. Basically you have a custom template for the blog posts which includes the content in master list mode. You can download the SDK look at the code and customize it so it suits the needs of your website.
