Problem with substr
I have a description field in my database, and I'm trying to use the following function for a short results page.
$short_description = substr($long_description, 0, 65);
For some reason I only get the first 20 characters and 3 dots (...). Why is this happening, I just want the first 65 letters and no periods after that.
Please let me know what I'm doing wrong.
