Reading Options Keeps Changing Feed From Summary to Full Text (10 posts)

    Hi,

    I have an odd problem in the 1.5 version of WordPress.

    I have setup a blog and it works fine.

    Apart from one thing.

    Namely, that when I go into Options --> Reading, I change the number of posts to 3. 'Show the most recent' to 20 posts, and 'For each article show' to Summary.

    I then click on 'Update Options'

    Whenever I do this it shows as 'Options Saved' and the number of posts and the show the most recent part is ok.

    However, EVERY time it changes Summary into a click in Full Text instead.

    As I have some plans for the feed that specifically requires it to be a summary, this is a real headache.

    I have done a search on this forum, but couldn't find anything pertaining to this. And it is getting quite urgent that I fix it.

    So does anyone have any idea as to what is going on, and how I can fix it?

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    Stuart

    Its very odd, because I have another site using the exact same template and code (as far as I know) that doesn't have the same problem.

    Surely, someone must have an idea what is causing this?

    I am very open to suggestions. I just don't know where to start with it.

    I thought it might be permissions. So I tried changing options-reading.php to 666.

    No joy.

    Does anyone even have a hunch or something to try?

    Still struggling.

    Surely this can't be a new bug?

    Ok. I have narrowed the problem down a little.

    I copied an entire existing blog over with the same template, settings, theme. Everthing. (apart from the wp-config.php file) Only that didn't have this problem.

    And the problem still remains.

    The only difference between the one that works and the one that doesn't is that in the one that works (ie Where I can switch between 'summary' and 'full text' freely; rather then only being able to select 'full text') the table prefix in the wp-config.php file is set to 'wp_' whilst in the one that doesn't work properly it is set to ''. (ie no table prefix)

    Now, knowing that, does anyone have any idea what I need to change in order to get this to work?

    Ok. I have had another look at wp-admin/options-reading.php

    and their were the following lines (40 - 43):

    <td>
    <label><input name="rss_use_excerpt" type="radio" value="0" <?php checked(0, get_settings('rss_use_excerpt')); ?> /> <?php _e('Full text') ?></label>
    <label><input name="rss_use_excerpt" type="radio" value="1" <?php checked(1, get_settings('rss_use_excerpt')); ?> /> <?php _e('Summary') ?></label>
    </td>

    I changed the 0s to 1s and vice versa. ie

    <td>
    <label><input name="rss_use_excerpt" type="radio" value="1" <?php checked(1, get_settings('rss_use_excerpt')); ?> /> <?php _e('Full text') ?></label>
    <label><input name="rss_use_excerpt" type="radio" value="0" <?php checked(0, get_settings('rss_use_excerpt')); ?> /> <?php _e('Summary') ?></label>
    </td>

    I then went uploaded it and went back into the admin panel. And for at least ten seconds thought I had fixed it. Because Summary is ticked.

    However, on closer examination. I cannot change it to full text. And regardless of what I change in the Reading Options screen eg nimber of posts etc.

    When I view the rss feed for the site it is still showing all posts, and all of those posts show the full text.

    So clearly my RSS feed output settings somewhere are totally screwy.

    Can anyone help?

    I am getting bored of talking to myself! And I am running out of ideas for things to try.

    Hello!

    In options-reading.php as in upgrade-schema.php You try to change only VISIBILITY STATA of checkbox rss_use_excerpt.

    I find some function, called get_settings('rss_use_excerpt'), that (i mean) read state of rss_use_excerpt variable.

    But the next question: where is this "rss_use_excerpt" ?
