RSS Full Posts!

Well, the response has been quite overwhelming. Our servers were flooded with responses to our query and we had to buttress our LAN room with spare timber to prevent it from collapsing. Thankfully the hardware held and our representatives from PriceWaterhouseCoopers spent the morning tallying the results.

We know you are you are all waiting with baited breath for the results so we will try not to delay. The voting was close and although we did have to discard several votes due to dangling chads We think we have a winner.

We held a minor ceremony here at reBeLog headquarters, toasted the future, drank some vino, and threw the switch:


The RSS feed should now contain full articles!

RSS Full Posts?

Tom Bridge asks:

“Any chance I could get you to run full feeds of your posts in your RSS and not just titles?”

Some of my posts can get rather long so currently the RSS feed is set to summarize which either truncates the post or (if I provide one) shows the excerpt.

I don’t really care one way or another but I’m willing to put this to a vote. Do you want me to continue summarizing the RSS feeds, or do you want the full posts? I’ll give this post a week and then make my decision. The majority vote in the comments will win (only one vote per person please).

Alternately, if anyone knows of a WordPress template that will provide a separate full post RSS feed along with the default one let me know and I’ll look at implementing it.

  1. Ok so that yes may have been ambiguous after reading the entire article — the answer is to the question posed in the SUMMARY… clearly full posts are needed in RSS. Ahem.

  2. +1 on full post because I archive all your WO posts on NNW.

    Btw, Your WO posts TOTALLY ROCK David.

    Thanks a million for them and please, keep them coming 🙂

  3. Problem with RSS Feed in WordPress.
    I have a subdomain that I installed wordpress for another blog site, but the subdomain site's rss feed points to my parent site.
    Can anyone come up with any suggestions?
