Need to truncate post length

Need to truncate post length

Need to truncate post length

I need to truncate the post length that is displayed to 200 characters. Here is the code that produces the posts. I know how to do it if the results are echoed, but in this case there is no 'echo'... Thank you:

if ( fundify_is_crowdfunding() ) :
$wp_query = new ATCF_Campaign_Query( array(
'paged' => ( get_query_var( 'page' ) ? get_query_var( 'page' ) : 1 )
) );
else :
$wp_query = new WP_Query( array(
'posts_per_page' => get_option( 'posts_per_page' ),
'paged' => ( get_query_var('page') ? get_query_var('page') : 1 )
) );

if ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) :

<?php while ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) : $wp_query->the_post(); ?>
<?php get_template_part( 'content', fundify_is_crowdfunding() ? 'campaign' : 'post' ); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>

RE: Need to truncate post length


CODE --> php

<?php get_template_part( 'content', fundify_is_crowdfunding() ? 'campaign' : 'post' ); ?> 

is a WordPress core function that handles the output to the data stream.

You need to put your truncate function in "the_loop" and intercept the the post content between;

$wp_query->the_post() and get_template_part

where you would truncate(the_content(), 200)
