truncate_html

Truncate a HTML text to a maximum length.

The HTML text is truncated to the maximum length specified with the argument. The text will be truncated at the maximum length, if any text remains then the ellipsis character is added and all open HTML tags are closed.

For example:

{{ value|truncate_html:8 }}

If the value is hello <b>world</b> then the output is hello <b>wo…</b>.

Entities like “&amp;” are counted as a single character.

Self closing entities like <img/> and <br/> are not counted as characters.

Truncating character

An optional second argument defines which text will be added if the text is truncated:

{{ value|truncate_html:8:" (more)" }}

If the value is hello <b>world</b> then the output is hello <b>wo (more)</b>.
