I’m hoping to use manually entered excerpts that contain hyperlinks. So two questions:
–Is it possible to have the plugin pick up a the manual excerpt (if it is set) before falling back to the generated excerpt?
–Is it possible to have the plugin not strip html from the excerpt? I tried deleting $text = strip_shortcodes( $text ); as suggested elsewhere in this forum, but to no avail. I’m using the plugin Rich text excerpts to add the links.
