I've decided to start using the <!--more--> tag to break long posts into two parts, thus shortening my feed enough to do a full-text feed.
Although I can post from Ecto to WordPress using this tag and the post appears fine on WordPress, when I try to edit the post in Ecto, only the text before the <!--more--> tag appears, making it virtually impossible to edit the post in Ecto. Oddly enough, the entire post appears in the preview pane at the bottom of the window when I select the post in the Entries & Drafts window. Double-clicking the post to edit displays just the first half of the post.
Is this a bug? Is there a workaround?
