I am not sure if this is possible, but I'd like for my post excerpt to display the audio player, rather than the anchor.fm link that currently displays.
You can see what I mean on this page: hidden link
If you click on Read More from one of the posts, you will see that the audio player automatically works correctly on the Podcast single page. However, in the View, it just shows the URL, instead of the media player.
Hello and thank you for contacting Toolset support.
The excerpt, unlike the post body, displays raw data and will not initialize the player. The workaround on the other hand seems incomplete to me. Have you added the shortcode code to the theme or in a Toolset snippet?
If you have already added it to a Toolset snippet, make sure that the snippet is active.
If that does not help, allow me temporary access to your website to check this closely. Your next reply will be private to let you share credentials safely. ** Make a database backup before sharing credentials. **
Thank you for the credentials. I can see why the shortcode breaks the layout. Because it removes the closing tags(such as <div>) and that will definitely break the layout.
I tried to create another shortcode that will apply the_content filter to the exceprt, hoping that will generate the audio player, but it did not help.
As a workaround, I thought about a simple CSS solution, assuming that the audio player is always the first in the content. The idea is to display the content but hide all paragraphs except the first one. For that, we need to add a CSS class to the Fields&Text block(my-hide) and add the following CSS code.

Interesting idea to use CSS. I decided to keep what you did, plus add a max-height to the p that is visible and set overflow to hidden. That combination helped truncate it nicely. I can't get a the 3 dots at the end of the text unfortunately, but I think it works out pretty well this way.
