    you are not using the ";" anywhere in the code, after statements
    should be:
    echo "143191220";
    echo $content;
    echo " [...]";
    $content=substr($content,0,$espacio);
    $espacio=strpos($content," ",$max_char);

    ???strlen;???

    and so on...

    these lines:
    $category
    $category
    PHP:
    when some word is starting with a $ means that is a variable
    if you start a line with a variable like $x, you should then assign a value
    example:

    $x=1;
    $category=1;
    PHP:
    a variable can have different types (integer, float, string and so on)
    for example if you write:

    $category="my category name";
    PHP:
    php will automatically know that this is a string

    in this line, for example:

    $thumb=get_post_meta($postid,"thumb");
    PHP:
    you are assigning to the variable $thumb what is returned by the function get_post_meta, giving those values ($postid, "thumb")

    then, many are php functions, many others can be custom functions
    for example get_post_meta seems a wordpress function, so I guess you are using wordpress

    anyway, you can't only write:

    $x
    PHP:
    or

    $category
    PHP:
    because it means nothing
