    I’m trying to set a limit for the intro text at the "K2 latest items".
    I could fix a limit to a category (list) and there it works perfectly fine.
    But I can’t get it to work on the latest items, it always show the full text.
    Using the "Read more" link at the editor screws up my layout and I’d like to have it automatically set for all items.

    Did I miss anything?

    The article introtext is work as per the readmore added in the item . You need to add readmore in editor to show the introtext .
    Could u provide details what issue you are getting when using readmore with site details and screenshot where i can check it .
    I also found the a thread on K2 forum to limit the introtext here is it can help u to edit the code for introtext.

    Hi Pankaj,

    thank you for your reply. I actually tried this one already, but it didn’t have any effect.
    The result while using the "readmore" button is shown in the screenshot.

    Any guess?

    Also i set the word limit for intro text . You can check it on your site .

    Changes here: "/html/com_k2/templates/ja_blazes_blog/latest_item.php" in template "ja_blazes".
    I changed this code

            <?php echo $this->item->introtext; ?>


    <?php echo K2HelperUtilities::wordLimit($this->item->introtext, 40); ?>

    Word limit is working fine on your site >

    Hi Pankaj,

    thanks a lot.
    I did these things befor, cleaned cache, T3 cache and browser cache and it looked weird. Somehow it works now. I don’t know why.
    Thanks again.
