    55By passing a long string through the `get_the_excerpt` and `get_excerpt` filters, you are simulating the case where you have entered the same long text into the `Excerpt` field in the `Edit Post` screen. When a custom excerpt is present in the `$post`, no trimming is done (though other content filters are applied).
