I believe there is a custom html/css way to set how many characters appear in the blog description. Please let me know how I can limit the descriptions to 200 characters. Thanks!

To adjusted to 200 characters you can adjust the first paramter from 28 to 200. 

 

{{ html_text|truncatehtml(200, '..' , false) }}

This filter takes three paramters which I have listed below. 

 

1. Amount of characters to display for the user

2. The elipsis to display after the specificed number of characters in the first paramter

3. Whether words will be broken at length

Hi, 

 

I believe you're looking for truncatehtml found here. https://designers.hubspot.com/docs/hubl/hubl-supported-filters. 

 

This will give you something like the following

{{ html_text|truncatehtml(28, '..' , false) }}
