Support » Plugin: Seriously Simple Podcasting » Feed shows only excerpt with “read more” instead of post content

  • Dear support team,

    I am currently facing an issue with the Seriously Simple Podcasting RSS feed. I checked the settings option “Episode description” to “Post Content” but the feed still shows only the excerpt including the “read more” (German: “Weiterlesen”) tag. Is this a known issue? I really need to get this fixed.

    Thanks in advance for your support,

    Hi @cleuenberg have you tested this behavior with a stock theme like TwentyTwenty? We see sometimes that some themes control aspects of the RSS Feed contents, independent of the settings that you choose as to whether to show the Post Excerpt or Post Content.

    Be curious to see what this looks like with a standard theme to see if this behavior is still present with a different theme.

    Thanks @podcastmotor for your reply! I cannot switch to a standard theme because some settings might get screwed. But indeed the Astra Theme settings (Customizer) limit the excerpt count to 55 for Blog archive. I think this is affecting your feed. Is there any chance of using a filter in my functions.php to solve this issue? Or is this something I need to address to the Astra developers?

    Hi @cleuenberg,

    I did find this: – It looks like the Astra theme does contain a pro module that gives you the option to modify the excerpt word count.
