Posts truncated in RSS feed (10 posts)

    I am trying to find the option to make sure that the posts in the RSS feed for my WordPress aren't truncated ( see http://littlesvr.ca/grumble/index.php/feed/ ).

    I'm new to this but as far as I know there are no 'more' tags in the posts.

    The only thing I have installed on top of the stock wordpress is the theme. Could that be at fault?

    Thanks in advance

    Your feed appears to be full.

    You'd confirm by visiting Options -> Reading. Check the "Syndication Feeds" section, "For each article, show" item.

    Thanks HandySolo but changing "For each article, show:" from "Full text" to "Summary" doesn't make any difference.

    Could you explain what you mean by "Your feed appears to be full."?

    I looked at your feed. I saw full articles.

    What makes you think your feeds aren't full? How are you checking?

    And changing to Summary will definitely make a difference, just not the one you want ;-)

    I click on feed://http//littlesvr.ca/grumble/index.php/feed/ and shift-reload in firefox, I only see the first few sentences.

    Also on http://zenit.senecac.on.ca/~chris.tyler/planet/ my posts are cut off.

    How are you looking at them that you see the whole thing?

    Ah, yeah... feed "testing" in firefox is problematic.

    Right click on that page and view source to see the "real" feed.

    Oh.. that's strange. What about the planet then? Is that a planet problem? I think most of the other blogs on there are wordpress also and they all show up full.

    Sorry I'm taking up so much of your time.

    Oh, you may not be seing the problem because the planet is subscribed not to the main feed but to a category feed: http://littlesvr.ca/grumble/index.php/category/opensource/?feed=rss

    I tried both the blog feed and the category feed in Akregator and though the blog feed shows full posts the category feed has cut-off posts.

    So maybe the problem has to do with categories? Are there more ways to control a category? I don't see anything under Manage/Categories.

    Use this URL:

    http://littlesvr.ca/grumble/index.php/category/opensource/feed

    That one looks to be full.
