    Since I upgraded my blog to WordPress 2.8, Google Reader no longer shows a full text RSS feed and many readers have already complained. Any idea what could cause this problem?

    Feed URL = http://www.macmacken.com/feed/

    Martin,

    In your Admin site, if you go under Settings>Reading look for "For each article in a feed, show" and change it from Summary to Full Text. If it's already on full text, try and change it to summary and save it, then change it back to full text and save it and try that out.

    That site is using FeedBurner. Also, it does have the full text in it right now, near as I can tell. I see the full text, anyway.

    @edwhittle: Your hint didn't worked, unfortunately.

    @Otto42: I had to switch to FeedBurner to provide a full-text RSS feed to Google reader users, that's correct, however, not a solution … :(

    Did anyone ever get to the bottom of this? I have the same problem, it seems to be since I upgraded to 2.8.x.

    Thanks!

    I tried to switch back to the WP RSS feed and the problem occured again. So I stick now with FeedBurner.

    I have the same issue since upgrading. Is there a fix for this (other than using feedburner)?

    i have the same problem. all feeds show a summary despite settings saved as full text.

    Isn't this a simple and basic requirement of any publishing system?

    I've looked at the source code of the feeds, and the problem seems to be that the feed is displaying the <description> instead of the <content>.

    the complete posts are all in the source code of the feed, but it is set up to only display the shorter description.

    this should be easy to fix ... :)

    Any solutions yet? This bug makes WP pretty useless to me.
