  • Hi, two months after, I still haven’t find a solution. If someone can bring a light of hope to a desperate blogger… πŸ˜‰

    I found this but do not know exactly if it applies to the current feed wordpress. If you can use it maybe you can tell me how to, as well, since I have been looking for a way for all posts fetched from my syndication list to automatically be excerpts with a link to “read more” which points to the original source’s blog post.

    Link to original source of info:

    $this->post['post_content'] = strip_tags($excerpt).’<br /><a target=”_blank” href=β€β€˜.$this->item['link'].’”
    >[Read original &rarr;]</a>’


    I had the same problem/challenge. It’s so simple it’s almost embarrassing! It’s the “more” tag. Here’s the simple explanation:

    DavidSpeaks: I don’t think that’s the solution we’re looking for. We want to truncate the posts themselves, not provide a tag that allows users to view the full post on our site. The more tag is simply a way to split a post and force the reader to click through to view the rest of it while remaining on our site. The OP (and I) seems to want to only post an excerpt to the WordPress database and not include more than that.

    Are you referring to this? Refer to point number 6) How to make feedwordpress retrieve only a short excerpt and not the entire post? Feedwordpress : truncate the article

    This is my development site for customizing feedwordpress before it goes live
