Ending article excerpt at more tag in RSS feed (2 posts)

    Hi folks,

    I'd like the post excerpts in my blog's RSS feed to end at the <--more--> tag in the post rather than after the usual 55 words, unless the <--more--> tag is missing.

    I've set "For each article in a feed, show: Summary" under Settings -> Reading. But the summary is truncated after 55 words, not at the <--more--> tag.

    I've tried the Advanced Excerpt plugin, which allows me to vary the word count but still truncates posts based on the word count even when the <--more--> tag exists.

    It seems most logical to me that if a <--more--> tag exists, WordPress should use it to define the end of the excerpt. Anyone know how to enable this behavior in the RSS feed?

    Thanks,
    Graham

    The more tag and the excerpt are not one in the same...the more tag is being stripped in the feed...why? Theme/plugin/browser/feed service?
