Hi everyone and thanks for reading. I've been making a news section for a client's site and now I'm trying to make a little box for the front page to show the five latest stories. Everything is fine in that aspect; I know about using the LIMIT keyword in the SQL statement to only bring back a few stories, but what I want to do is limit the amount of words brought back; a teaser so to speak.
How would I go about limiting the amount of words in the 'description' field (as an example) to 20 or so? I'd then want to append a "..." onto the end and then have a link which says Read More.
Thanks in advance,
