I think FeedWordpress is super great. One thing though I’d like to control is the length of posts syndicated. My site is Worldfootballextra.com, and I always have to manually check each syndicated post to:
1) Add a “Continue Reading” link to link to the original source
2) Most importantly, cut the length of the article to 2-3 paragraphs.
For instance, I will try to syndicate posts from UltimateFIFA.com. This site’s RSS Feed has only titles and excerpts: http://ultimatefifa.com/feed/
But after the posts get syndicated, the full-version articles will appear on my site. This is not what I want. I am looking for a way to set how many words/characters/paragraph should show up on my site. I don’t want the full length.
It looks like there used to be a great add-on for this problem, but its download link is no longer working and it leads to a 404 Error Page: http://projects.radgeek.com/fwp-limit-size-of-posts/
Could someone please look into this? That’s all I’m asking from FeedWordpress, really…
Thanks a lot in advance,
