XF 1.3 NewsFeed Question

    We are using our new XenForo forum to highlight a Blog and we have setup the Newsfeed to import the posts.

    However we don't want to import the entire post but instead we want to highlight the first 50 words or so and then encourage people to visit the link below the continue reading.

    I know how to set the link to continue reading but is there a tip or trick to only capture a little bit of the blog and not the entire thing?

    That requires an addon. Or you can modify this file directly:

    library/XenForo/Model/Feed.php

    The "prepareFeedEntry" function operates on the feed content before it is posted. This requires some coding ability.

    Would you know or be able to suggest an addon?
