    Does anyone know how I can change the number of words/characters of the main text (description) in News_List.aspx? I want to have less words in the news teaser.

    Best regards

    I found the solution myself. If someone is interested, here is the solution:

    Under tha catalog App_Code you have the file Shared_routines.vb. Change the value of Truncate_Count to the number of words you want as a teaser. The value under gives you 20 words before the "read more" link.

    Public Module Shared_Routines

    Const TRUNCATE_COUNT As Integer = 20

    Any idea how to mix free text editor with this. I would like to have good artcles with photo and few things in bold and clours, with paragraphs, making this club starter kit articles more elegant.

    Currently, we cannot show a paragraph also.All running text shows.

    Has anyone implemented this
