Welcome to the forums, and please use a more descriptive title for your threads (I've edited it this time).

To your question, the easiest way would just be to open up rssticker.js, find the below line, and add to it the code in red:


this.description[i]=this.feeditems[i].getElementsByTagName("description")[0].firstChild.nodeValue
this.description[i]=this.description[i].substring(0, 100)

where 100 means you only want to show the first 100 characters.
