A little WordPress help please

Fellow WordPress users can I ask for your help?

How can I get full posts in my RSS feeds? I’ve set everything I can find to full feeds, but still I’m only getting a one line summary in my feed. This is very annoying, for me and for my readers. Does anyone know why this might be happening? And, if you do, do you know of a way to fix it?

Thank you.

  1. It’s more than likely a problem with Feedburner rather than wordpress. If you have Full text enabled in WordPress then you need to edit your feed details in Feedburner and change the end of the Original feed line to read:

    feed=rss2

    rather than

    feed=rss

      Nope, it’s definitely a problem at the WordPress end. I’ve looked at the feed Feedburner is picking up and the truncation’s in there. Other themes removed the content of the posts completely from the feed and only left the headlines.

      There’s an update for the theme. I’ll see if that makes a difference.

      Problem solved. One of the theme settings was for excerpts. Nowhere on the settings page did it mention RSS but, as I’d set everything else to full content, RSS was the only thing it was cutting content down for. I’ve upped the excerpt length so that most posts will appear in full in the RSS.
