My excerpts are set up to be used everywhere, with home page full length for first two posts. (See attachment).
However, if I do a search, I get mixed behaviour. Some posts are excerpted at 80 words, like I set, but a few others show the entire post.
You can replicate this behaviour by searching for "PVP" from my home page. Like this. Note about half-way down, the "Jewelcrafting" post is really huge!
I have already implemented the 3.51 = == fix that Juggle posted.
I'm using 3.5.1 with wordpress 2.9x, any suggestions on how to fix?
