How to Truncate Text

Post by PixelinkMedia » Mon Apr 22, 2019 7:02 pm

Only display a small portion of a long string...

Code: Select all

$text = "long text that should be truncated";
echo substr($text, 0, 15);

This code will begin at 1st char (0) and only get 15 char.
The output would be...
"long text that"

FYI... this also includes white spaces.
