Keyword search results excerpts: how do I make them longer?

    When someone does a search on my forum, the excerpt of the post returned is typically only a sentence long... any way to increase it's length?

    Also, the keyword is only highlighted as bold. But I want to add a yellow background highlight to it. Where would that be in the templates CSS? o_O

    Interesting idea.

    Probably easy with some CSS.

    Found the answers on my own

    in Extra.css template add

    .highlight {
    and in template search_result_post, change the 150 number in this code

            <blockquote class="snippet">
                <a href="{xen:link posts, $post}">{xen:helper snippet, $post.message, 150, {xen:array 'term={$search.search_query}', 'emClass=highlight', 'stripQuote=1'}}</a>
