Templatetag for truncating blog post bodies...

Project description

# django-continue-reading Templatetag for truncating blog post bodies and adding a link that says “continue reading…” which redirects the user to the absolute url or full body of the post.


###Installation `$ pip install django-continue-reading`

Add the following to your INSTALLED_APPS section

'django_continue_reading' ###How it works…

If your blog application has a model object that has a title and body field

`title = models.CharField(max_length=250)`

`body = models.TextField()`

You can pass the post model object and number of words you would like to truncate your post at to this templatetag

`{% load continue_reading %}`

`{% continue_reading post 80 %}`

It will then truncate the number of words in your post body and append a link to the bottom

The continue reading link will use the absolute_url of your post model object to redirect the user to the full thing.
