Hi Sven,
It looks like combination of first para and spinfolder is not working properly ...
This is what my project looks like:
And this is what is produced:

    Well it was never meant to be used with other macros in it. Just variables defined in your project. Though I might add support for it in next version.
  • I had the same issue. I ended up creating a third folder for where I put the first paragraph. A pain in the ass to get it setup, but that's what your VA is for.

    Well ok good to know that it is not working. I had my summaries created by hand but thought I could save some time using this macro. Whatever ;)

    After the recent update 6.08 my first paragraph macro is pulling in the entire article in the TEST view. Not sure if it's trying to submit the whole article in the summary but TEST view shows entire article. 

    I guess that if it does submit entire article in summary it will get truncated. 

    OR will it fail the submission? Does anyone know? 
  • SvenSven
    @AlexR must be your heavy macro usage again :/ paste the stuff you setup on that macro.

    @sven - Basically if you use spinfolder to choose a random article (in article body field) and then the macro to use first paragraph (in article summary field) it pulls in the whole article. 

    At least I'm testing all your macros. :-)
  • @sven @AlexR

    Exact same thing was happening to me. I saw it in the test window. Never actually submitted like that.
  • SvenSven
    so in article you have spinfolder macro only and in summary you have %first_paragraph-article% ?
