#6998 new enhancement

Strip new posts text in activity feed using words counters, not chars

Currently when you publish a new post, it's content is also appears on site wide activity, but stripped to a certain number of characters.
That causes situations, when some words are cut into parts, which looks bad.

I suggest to start using words counters, and not chars counter for this purpose.

I am not sure where we are doing this currently, be we ought to be passing the string through bp_create_excerpt().

Not sure if this got fixed, but I'm struggling to get it to work as described by @slaFFik. When I increase the length of a word that's right before the proverbial cutoff, at some point, that word is just no longer getting shown.

"lead Nelsons folly pirate Sail ho. Black jack scourge" Everything after the "ho." is getting cut off, so that's my breakpoint. When I make the "ho" a much longer word, it is suddenly cut off completely, and the excerpt stops at "Sail".
