This plugin allows you to specify in the settings page a CSS class, and then looks for any elements that contain it and trims the text down so that it does not overflow its container’s height. This is for vertical trimming of multi-line text, and also works if the element has direct children.
HOW TO USE
Once you install and activate the plugin, there will be a new tab for it under the “settings” admin menu. Go to this page, and enter the name of the CSS class you are using in your HTML to specifiy which elements should be truncated. Click save, and that’s it!
