Changing the length of RSS Excerpt (5 posts)

    Before upgrading to 1.2, it was possible to modify the length of the excerpt used in the RSS feed by the "rss_excerpt_length" field. This field no longer appears in the Syndication options in 1.2. Is it still possible to modify the length of the excerpt, and if so, how does one do it?

    Don't tell anyone, but the old style options are still available at wp-admin/options.php?option_group_id=X
    try numbers from 1 through 8 for X, to get the pre 1.2 options pages.

    Can anyone explain RSS to me? I have an idea of what it does, but not sure how to use it (set it up, etc.). Thanks so much!

    Wow, thanks for that, it worked perfectly.
    Given that the options are still there, it would be nice to be able to access them in the new menus.
