K2 – Limit Intro Text

I was surprised I wasn’t able to do this easier, but it looks like others have struggled with this as well. I did get it fixed, and was able to limit the word count. I didn’t make a override yet but I will.

In the latest_item.php file I replaced:

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


<?php echo K2HelperUtilities::wordLimit($this->item->introtext, 50); ?>

Here is the thread that helped me solve it


I hope this helps someone else out there…
