first load the text helper, either auto load it or load it in the constructor in the controller.


then use the following function:

word_limiter($string, 10);

where the 10 is the number of words that will display


a sample post would look like the following in the view file

<?php foreach ($posts as $p): ?>
<h2><?php echo $p['title']; ?></h2>
<p><?php echo word_limiter($p['body'], 25); ?></p>
<?php echo anchor('blog/post/'.$p['id'], 'Read More >>>');
<?php endforeach; ?>


The second to last line of code will create a link to the full blog article
