Advanced Excerpt causing RSS feed to hang - server load (4 posts)

    Hi -- first off, I love this plugin. I've been using it on various sites for quite some time.

    However, just recently I was informed by my host that my site's feed is hanging, which is causing an extremely high load on the server (as the script never finishes).

    Doing the usual routine of check-deactivate-check, I discovered my feed woes are magically cured when I disable Advanced Excerpt.

    I'm not using the plugin in any unusual way (on the affected site, I'm not even using the template function call), and I'm using the most recent version of AE (3.1) and WP (2.9.1).

    Any guesses as to what it might be would be much appreciated.

    same trouble here, except that it hangs on category pages, rather than in the feed.

    i suspect that this complaint is related


    i have to disable this plugin totally in order to restore my site to working order.

    btw, here's the error:

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in advanced-excerpt/advanced-excerpt.php

    if you put that into google, you'll see that it is obviously affecting quite a few blogs out there:

    by the way, this doesn't happen all the time, there was a *particular* post that was causing the server to hang. When I wrote in a custom excerpt for that one post, everything went back to working order, but since I don't know what tag or shortcode was causing the problem, i had to bail on the plugin in case the problem returns.
