Sometimes, you can not limit the content by character or letter.It distracts the layout of content so you want to set word limit on the_content() in WordPress so content displaying the site looks pretty good.Well, In WordPress, we are using a the_content function to displaying the content of post or blog.So here we need to customize the_content function which we can do by applying the hook into it.Open theme’s file functions.php and place the following code into it.
$words = explode(' ', $content);
return implode(' ', array_slice($words, 0, $word_limit));
You just need to copy and paste the above code and just change the $word_limit variable value to the desired limit you want.
