Want limited meta descriptions? limited sidebar text snippets? limited blog teasers? Maybe you have custom texts you need to limit in length? No problem! This plugin does it all.

Limit posts, pages, categories or your custom text. Limit the number of characters to what you like. You are calling the plugin function from your theme.


  1. Upload the wp-blurb directory to wp-content/plugins.
  2. Activate the plugin


You can use WP Blurb to very many things. Here is just some examples of where you can use this plugin.

  • Automatically display Meta Descriptions
  • Automatically display Blog Teasers
  • Automatically sidebar Text Snippets
  • Display a snippet of a custom text of your choice


Moretext (string) – Text end ([...] is set by default).
Limit (int) – Limit the number of characters, rounded down to whole words (default is unlimited, empty input).
Custom input (string) – Your own text (the_content, the_excerpt and category_description is default).

Example 1. Meta Description

Place the code below to create an automated meta description into your posts, pages, categories, archives, index and so on.

<meta name="Description" content="<?php wp_blurb('[more]', 200); ?>" />

Example 2. Blog teasers

Within the loop, in the archive.php, place this code:

<?php wp_blurb('[...]', 200, get_the_content()); ?>

Example 3. Custom Text Snippet

Use the parameters to control the output. You can even insert your own text.

<?php wp_blurb('[More]', 10, 'This is my little text.'); ?>

Example 4. Advanced usage | Change the output yourself

Advanced users sometimes like to change things. The output text can be changed with the get_simple_description() function.

$my_description = get_blurb();
echo $my_description;

    I’ve a VideoBlog, and I want to hide the [video]YoUTuB3Id[/video] tag from the snippet.
    For eg, the snippet appears:
    [Video]hyYAysaha[/video]Content, blablabla, cool plugin, blablabla”

    I am looking for a way to shorten text in the sidebar.

    At the moment, if I have a longer post, sidebar link expands to second row – I dont want that, i want something like this:

    If link (title) is too long, show only first 15 characters (for example):

    Original title/sidebar link: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit

    I want this:
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectet(…)

    Could you help me on that?

    It strips the HTML tags before limiting the input.
