Shorten string with a “…” body in PHP?

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Let’s say the following is our string −

$sentence="This is my first PHP program";

We want the following output −

This is my first PHP ... gram

We shorten the string with “…”. For this, use the concept of substring() and set in a condition by checking the number of words −

Example

 Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<?php
$sentence="This is my first PHP program";
if (strlen($sentence) >= 13) {
    echo substr($sentence, 0, 20). " ... " . substr($sentence, -4);
} else {
    echo $sentence;
}
?>
</body>
</html>

Output

This is my first PHP ... gram
