Xtreme Carousel Height Fix for Ads on Front Page
I need some help tweaking a little PHP for the XTremeCarousel plugin. This code below truncates the title if it's greater or equal to 14 characters. I need it to do the same thing for the category and the user name so it won't wrap them. If either of them get wrapped, it pushes the buttons down below the div they are enclosed in. You can see an example at www.ocalaequinesales.com
. Here's the part of the code in question, you can see the 2nd line is where the title is grabbed and truncated. I'm going to attempt to rewrite it myself but am open to suggestions as i don't think I have the necessary skills needed to do it ... lol
In the end, each line except the price would need to be truncated to 14 characters so they don't wrap the information down. In the link above you can see the one rescue horse's feature ad button is half missing since it's pushed down due to the category name wrapping.
Any php gurus out there with a quick fix?
<a id="rb_title"><?php if ( mb_strlen(get_the_title()) >= 14 ) echo mb_substr( get_the_title(), 0, 14 ).'...'; else the_title(); ?></a>
Under: <?php if ( get_the_category() ) the_category(', '); else echo get_the_term_list( $post->ID, APP_TAX_CAT, '', ', ', '' ); ?><br />
By: <span class="owner"><?php the_author_posts_link(); ?></span><br />
<span class="rb_price">Price: <?php if ( get_post_meta( $post->ID, 'price', true ) ) cp_get_price_legacy($post->ID); else cp_get_price( $post->ID, 'cp_price' ); ?></span>
