HowTo: Trim WP Posts in XF to Avoid Duplicate Content

One of the challenges to the XenScripts bridge is avoiding duplicate content, yet getting the readers from the forums to see the complete post. The following code modifies xf_thread_creation_system.php so that the body of the WordPress blog posting is trimmed to 500 words. This avoids the duplication.

PHP:
            $body = $XF->visitor->get('username') . ' submitted a new blog post:';
   
            $body .= "\n\n[URL='" . get_permalink($post->ID) . "']" . $title . "[/url]\n\n";
   
            $body .= '[quote]' . XenForo_Helper_String::wholeWordTrim(XenForo_Helper_String::autoLinkBbCode(XenForo_Html_Renderer_BbCode::renderFromHtml(nl2br($content))), 500) . '[/quote]';
