Any suggestions for how to duplicate the functionality of BlogEntry->ParagraphSummary() in Blog0.6/SS3?

I use it to show the first paragraph of the latest blog entries on the site front page. At the moment I just have $ParagraphSummary in the template (within a BlogEntry loop).

cheers

A number of other text operations (perhaps try FirstParagraph or ContextSummary) http://api.silverstripe.org/3.0/framework/model/Text.html

Will,
Thanks for that tip. I replaced
$ParagraphSummary
with

<% with Content %>
   $LimitWordCountXML(40)
<% end_with %>

That has the added benefit that authors can now include html in their initial text.
