Creating teaser by snipping at x characters

Postby Esstee » Mon May 30, 2005 8:46 pm

Currently I am creating my teasers with a dedicated teaser text field.
But as my newsroom layout is nearing completion I am thinking that it
would be much better if everything was done with 1 single field instead
of multiple text input fields.

Because as it is now, I have:

Headline teaser
Industry Teaser
Humor Teaser

etc etc

to many teaser boxes and each with image upload fields it makes for a
pretty messy interface, so I know that Coranto can snip at a certain
character lenth so I also wondered if I could still use maginot and do
my teaser full story approach if I did that?

So all text would be entered in one field, and I would simply choose
what area that particular news would go and it would get formatted
accordlingly.

if that is all possible.

Why shouldn´t you be able to use the full text in the Maginot style, just don´t use the snip tag there?

Anyway, if you don´t like the normal snip tag, the forum contains a bunch of different approaches for snipping, here are some examples:
